On August 19, Season of Mist will give way to Drif, the highly anticipated new full-length by way of world music outfit Heilung. As noted in our review of the group's first North American Tour, they're a spectacle to behold and any opportunity to witness them live must be explored. Drif will pave the way for an incoming set of live dates that follow the album's release, making for a unique showing. Lead single Anoana arrives soon and Heilung had the following to say of the Drif title:


'Drif' means 'gathering,' a throng of people, a horde, a crowd, a pack. In symbiosis with the album title, 'Drif' consists of a flock, a collection, a gathering, a collage of songs, that much like little flames were seeking towards each other, to join, to bond, to create, and be greater together. This album has very clearly dictated its own path. Our attempts to tame it was repeatedly fruitless and once we came to this realization, the creative flow surged forward with immense force, so much so that sometimes it felt like the songs wrote themselves. All the songs on 'Drif' have their own stories. They have each their place and sense of belonging, with inspiration not only from Northern Europe, but from the ancient great civilizations.”
