Anna Lotterud (born 17 June 1991),[1] better known by her stage name Anna of the North, is an Oslo-based Norwegian singer-songwriter from Gjøvik. Her music has been regarded as "soft, soul-baring electro-pop".[2]

Early life[edit]

Anna Lotterud was born in Gjøvik in Norway. She studied graphic design before moving to Melbourne, Australia for further studies.

Music career[edit]

During her studies in Melbourne, Australia, Anna met New Zealand-born producer Brady Daniell-Smith at one of his shows and together formed Anna Of The North, with Anna doing the vocals and Brady producing the melodies.[3]

In June 2014, Anna Of The North released her debut single Sway, which became an immediate internet hit and landed her a record deal with Honeymoon in the US.[4] In September 2014, The Chainsmokers officially remixed Sway.[5][6]

She followed up the song with "The Dreamer" and "Baby", hitting the top in Hype Machine and later supporting Kygo on tour across Europe.[7] Over the next few months, she released the song "Us" and "Oslo" to critical acclaim.[8]

In May 2017, Anna announced her debut album 'Lovers' with the title track as well as lead single "Someone" for a September 8 release.[9]

In July 2017, Anna was featured on Tyler, The Creator's singles "Boredom" and "911 / Mr. Lonely" off his album Flower Boy alongside Frank Ocean.[10] Anna was also invited to perform with Tyler the Creator and Steve Lacy on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.[11]
