Running with the Wolves is the debut EP of AURORA. It was released on May 4, 2015 through Decca Records and Universal Records.

Background[edit | edit source]

After releasing her third single “Under Stars”, AURORA began to work on more music, which would be her debut EP. “Runaway”, the first and lead single, was released on February 7, gaining more attention worldwide and on social media. On February 29, a music video for the song was released. Afterward, the next and final single “Running with the Wolves” was released to accelerate the post-release of the EP. The EP contained two other songs, “Little Boy in the Grass” and “In Boxes”. A music video for “Running with the Wolves” was released that June.

In early 2016, the follow up project of the EP was announced. This would be her first studio album All My Demons Greeting Me as a Friend. Prior to the release, AURORA provided two other singles, "Murder Song (5, 4, 3, 2, 1)" and "Half the World Away," the latter being a cover of the band Oasis for the 2015's John Lewis Christmas advert.
