Ivar Bjørnson Reveals the Name of the New Enslaved Album


Did you know that the dudes in Enslaved love MDMA? ‘Cause I had no idea. But guitarist Ivar Bjørnson has revealed to our buds at WSOU that the band’s new album will be called E, so I guess they do!

I kid, I kid. I mean, about the MDMA bit. The album really will be called E.

Bjørnson explained the title thusly:

“It’s gonna be called just ‘E.’ The letter ‘E.’ Because we’ve had so many pretentious big titles now, we wanted to boil it down to the simplest factor, and that’s the ‘E.'”

Fair enough!

No word yet on a release date, but Bjørnson says the album has been done for a few weeks now, so a 2017 unveiling doesn’t seem out of the question.

You can listen to the entire interview below. The bit about the album title begins around 3:46.
