Running To The Sea

Album: The Inevitable End (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • This single features vocals by the Norwegian Alt-Pop singer-songwriter Susanne Sundfør, whose third long player The Brothel was the second-best-selling album of 2010 in her home country. She also sung on M83's title song for the Tom Cruise-starring, post-apocalyptic movie Oblivion.
  • The accompanying B-side, "Something In My Heart," features vocals by Jamie McDermott, who is the frontman of the ten-man orchestral ensemble, The Irrepressibles. "'Running To The Sea' and 'Something In My Heart' are in essence both expressions of compulsion and its strong, often uncontrollable, persisting pull", explained Röyksopp. "Dependence is a returning theme in our music."
