Infections Of A Different Kind is the 2nd studio album by AURORA set to be released in fall 2018

Background

On the day of releasing her debut album All My Demons Greeting Me as a Friend, AURORA said that it was "the first album of many" that she has planned. As of 12 May 2016, after coming back from her European tour, AURORA announced that she was ready to begin writing and producing more material, which will eventually form her second studio album. She has said in a Facebook event that she has 15 demo songs and has written 1,000 songs/poems.

As of April 3rd, 2018, AURORA has revealed on her Instagram story that the album is complete. It is set to be released in Autumn 2018

It will definitely be a bit darker and weirder than the first one, and a bit deeper into her soul.

Songs

AURORA said the album will have 11 songs[1] but later she confirmed in an interview she changed it.[2] And on July 22, 2016 AURORA revealed the album will have 8 songs. [3]

The songs on the album will address issues such as domestic abuse, global warming, connection v connectivity and fear of intimacy. [4]They are mostly piano-driven with some harp touches. Overall, the initial goal was (or still is) to use organic instruments.

She also said that she wants to include some of her old songs[5] and that she wants to put song that includes her native language.

Her favorite track in the album is the eighth track (on the official tracklist; not announced).

On the 11 April 2018, she teased a new single, expected to be lead single from her second album, entitled "Queendom", which was released on April 16, 2018.

She stated in an interview that the second single will in a primal/playful mood (Possibly Forgotten Love), while the third single is going to be very dark. She states that she wants to experiment with different styles, and she wants to know which part of her audience wants to put her in a "box". She doesn't want her audience to put her in a "box".[6]

Old songs that could be added
