It’s been a while since we last heard from Susanne Sundfør, but the Norwegian indie folk artist returns to positively sweep us off our feet with her latest single, “Good Luck Bad Luck.” Featured on her recent fifth album, the critically acclaimed Music for People in Trouble, it’s a theatrical threnody to a doomed relationship as performed over piano, double bass and baritone saxophone, all of which return for the song’s smoky, late-night jazz coda.

The official video for ‘Accelerate’ taken from Susanne’s recent album ‘Ten Love Songs’, directed by renowned Norwegian director Stian Anderson. Listen to ‘Ten Love Songs’ in full here:…

On ‘Ten Love Songs’ Sundfør bares all with epic results, and has arguably made her most compelling and fully realised work to date. She skilfully draws on the musical assistance both of new friends and old including Anthony Gonzalez of M83, Svein and Torbjorn from Röyksopp, her long-term collaborator Lars Horntveth of Jaga Jazzist, and the Trondheimsolistene Chamber Ensemble.
I also worked with the amazing Steven Hoggett on this video, who is a choreographer. It was an intense and fun experience to really go into depth on how you can make your body convey a mood or message.
I wanted to work with Stian Andersen because he has a great eye for the kind of video I wanted to make. I wanted it to be a live performance, and I wanted it to be raw and aggressive. I’m so happy with the video, and I’m so grateful that I’ve gotten to work with such a talent…

Susanne Sundfør – Mountaineers (featuring John Grant) is another beautiful track from her upcoming album. The song features vocals from Bella Union label mate John Grant and comes a day before the Scott Walker tribute show for the BBC Proms. Susanne said, I’ve been a great admirer of John Grant and his work, and meeting him for the first time at the Bella Union Studios in London was an experience I’ll never forget. What a talent, what a charisma! I’m so happy he’s on the album. Mountaineers
