TUNE Ida Wenøe - Circus Season
Circus Season is the brand new single by Danish Music Award nominee Ida Wenøe, out 12th April 2019 via Integrity Records, coinciding with the release of her second album The Things We Don’t Know Yet (CD, vinyl, download).
Circus Season follows the David Lynch-inspired Another Kind of Love which enjoyed support from BBC 6 Music’s Gideon Coe, Janice Long on BBC Radio Wales and BBC Radio Ulster’s Eve Blair, 3 playlist adds by the Spotify editorial team including Easy Indie & Alt, & praise from respected UK music sites like FRUK & Get In Her Ears and US tastemakers That Buzzing Sound & Come Here Floyd.
The songs on the new record explore many of Ida’s personal experiences and Circus Season follows Another Kind of Love’s folk-noir trail, reflecting a dark encounter on the last night of a US tour:
“I have met the devil. I met the devil at the circus. He was wearing the mask of a magician, but his horns were showing, and still ‘I kissed the devil on the last night of the Circus Season’. It was the night before I was leaving the USA. Once back in my native Scandinavia, I wrote Circus Season, still feeling under some kind of spell. The song got its haunting echo choir right away, like swirling sirens still luring me back to America, towards the devil himself.”
