Aurora releases powerful new climate crisis music video, 'Apple Tree'

Norwegian singer-songwriter Aurora has released a gripping new music video for her latest track, 'Apple Tree'. 

The visceral imagery in the music video may seem like a lot to handle to some, but it carries the weight of one of the most important topics that the human race is facing: Climate crisis. 

The 23-year-old said of the song, and its accompanying visual: "'Apple Tree’ is about the potential that hides in all of us. We can all save the world if we put our minds to it. The world won’t listen to scientific proof that the world is dying, so maybe it will listen to the dreamers, the children. In a bleeding world the power of the individual is our only hope. Let her save the world. Let him save them all. Believe in us, and maybe we’ll be the generation that saves the world, rather than the one that killed it.  The world is bleeding. It’s up to us now.”

The song accentuates the urgency of the matter, with lyrics that read: "Would you be kind to put away the sword / You cannot cut away what we've got / You cannot kill what we are / We are not here in physical form"

Aurora is set to perform at the Neon Lights festival in Singapore on Sunday, 24 November. Get your tickets here
