Step 2

A Different Kind Of Human - Step 2 is the 2nd chapter of AURORA's 2nd studio album.

Background

On the same day of the release of Step 1, AURORA confirmed in an interview with NME that Step 2 will be released either in 2019 or 2020[1]. Months after, AURORA posted a photo which seems to be an alien invasion with a text that said "Something is coming in 2019" in Morse code, which hinted that Step 2 would be set to release in 2019.[2]

On December 24, AURORA announced in an interview for Bergen Tindende that Step 2 is coming faster than expected, most likely because she and Magnus Skylstad had been in the studio for a very long time.[3]

Confirmed on January 22, the first single, "Animal", was released on January 24.

On February 18, 2019, AURORA announced that the title won't be "Infections Of A Different Kind - Step 2" but it'll have a different name. "It's kind of what I would hope for the music to do to us" says AURORA about Step 2's title.[4]

On March 12, 2019, in an interview on B-Sides On-Air, AURORA confirmed Step 2 has already been recorded since November 2018.[5] Then in the end of March, The Seed was confirmed to be the next single.[6]Following the announcement of the new single, the title and tracklist were revealed on April 4, 2019.

"The River" was officially released on May 10, 2019 as the third single.
