Part avant pop possibility, part modern classical, Anglo-Norwegian singer-songwriter Sasha Siem's new track 'Bird Burning' bridges an evocative journey, instantly hyping the arrival of her second studio LP, coming this fall.

Siem recorded the 10-track album at Greenhouse studios in Iceland with Valgeir Sigurðsson, who's previously worked with the likes of Björk, Feist, and Sigur Rós, among others. Perhaps one of the more unique aspects in the building of the record comes from Siem's time as an apprentice of Pulitzer Prize winning poet Jorie Graham, which no doubt helped form the integral lyrical compositions of the record.

A quick listen to the lead single opens up the immense sophistication Siem lays within her work. Trained at the Guildhall Music School in London, Siem is also the youngest composer ever to win the British Composer Award. She also studied music and literature at Cambridge and Harvard, in case her resume wasn't impeccable enough.

The album itself came, unfortunately, after the death of Siem's grandmother, which brought her back to her Sámi roots (those indigenous to Scandinavia). "The Sámi don't sing songs about things or people or places, they sing them directly into existence," she writes. "They don't sing about the bird; they sing the bird, invoking it in a kind of musical magic spell."
