Electro-pop singer-songwriter & producer extraordinaire Nanna Øland Fabricius, better known as Oh Land, recently announced her fourth studio album, Earth Sick- set for release November 11th via her own independent imprint, Tusk or Tooth, in collaboration with Kobalt Label Services! Immersed in her signature soundscape of lush vocals, rich string arrangements & infectious melodies, the album is a hybrid of masterfully woven symphonic & electronic sounds, and marks a full-circle return to the artist’s bedroom production style.
 
Having previously dropped Earth Sick first single “Head Up High,” “which metamorphizes from a deep pop ballad to an energizing power anthem,” Oh Land has now unveiled the striking accompanying video (directed by Duncan Winecoff for All:Expanded). Check out the NYLON-premiered “Head Up High” video where it’s available to post & share HERE! Vengeance never looked so good.

Frustrated by the struggle to keep her head above the waves and hold onto a sense of idealism despite the complexities of life, Oh Land grasped the struggle as the inspiration for her lyrical exploration on Earth Sick. Anchored by melancholic anthem “Machine,which opens the album with delicate yet industrial textures, tracks “Little Things” and“Earth Sick” continue the existential lyrical journey combined with the singer’s love for orchestral arrangements.
 
Oh Land began her career rather unconventionally following a ten-year budding career in ballet, which was ended abruptly by an injury. Searching for a new way to incorporate music into her life, she began recording in her bedroom and discovered an early knack for production. In 2008, she released her debut album Fauna to much critical acclaim, and has spent the better part of the past four years supporting her following releases,Oh Land Wish Bone, and supporting artists including Katy Perry Sia on the road.
 
Stay tuned for more news from Oh Land coming soon, and be sure to catch her when she plays New York City’s Bowery Ballroom TONIGHT- marking her first NYC show in a year!
