May 30, 2024—Norwegian alt-pop artist AURORA’s highly anticipated fourth studio album What Happened To The Heart? is due June 7 via Glassnote/Decca/Petroleum Records. Pre-order the album here.

The album’s critically acclaimed singles “Your Blood,” “The Conflict of the Mind” and “Some Type of Skin” continue to receive attention from BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 2 and many more.

Following a run of festival performances this summer, AURORA will embark on a fall headline tour What Happened To The Earth? Part 1 in support of the new music across the U.K. and Europe consisting of eleven dates and featuring a sold-out show at London’s esteemed Royal Albert Hall on October 2.

In addition to her U.K./Europe tour, AURORA will head to North America for the What Happened To The Earth? Part 2 tour with stops in nine cities including Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Chicago, Boston, New York and more. Tickets and more information can be found here, see below for a complete list of dates.

What Happened To The Heart? finds AURORA working alongside various new collaborators—including Ane Brun, Matias Tellez (girl in red, Maisie Peters), Tom Rowlands (Chemical Brothers), Chris Greatti (Yungblud, Blink-182) and Dave Hamelin (Beyonce, King Princess, Zara Larsson) among others—each bringing their own unique styles and depth to the project. Additionally, long-time collaborator Magnus Skylstad, who has been with AURORA since her debut album All My Demons Greeting Me as a Friend, returns to contribute to the album.

AURORA has described What Happened To The Heart? as her “most personal and cathartic album” to date, with each of the 16 tracks on this record tracing its inspiration back to a pivotal moment in April 2022 when the artist was first struck by the profound question, “What happened to the heart?” This query was ignited by her reading of the poignant letter We Are the Earth, a call to arms in the face of global warming. Delving into human anatomy books, AURORA sought to unravel the mystery of when and why Western culture lost touch with the deeper purpose of our most vital organ. Through her music, AURORA examines the loss of spiritual connection in modern society, underscoring the importance of vulnerability and advocating for reunifying the heart with politic and personal growth.

AURORA’s previous album The Gods We Can Touch (2022) was named one of the U.K.’s Top 10 albums and launched a sold-out U.K. headline tour, over a million album sales and 2.6 billion streams. The following year she released a book under the same name detailing her very intimate creative process and inspirations behind her third studio album, selling over 14,000 copies.
