Pop singer Sigrid reveals where her latest album cover was shot

Norwegian pop star Sigrid has fans around the world, including Elton John and Meghan Markle, and her music has been listened to over 1.3 billion times. Her new album was released this month and she revealed the dramatic cover was filmed in Wales.

It shows the singer dressed in red and standing on the roof of a late 1970s or 80s BMW E24 6 Series with a dramatic backdrop of mountains in the background. The 25-year-old confirmed to Lorraine earlier this week that the How to Let Go pic was shot in Snowdonia.

The singer said: “We went to Snowdonia, and we shot it because I like to get the most out of nature, so I thought I’d do a little hike too.” The new 12-track album was released on May 6 and includes the songs Mirror and Burning Bridges.

Snowdonia’s spectacular scenery makes it a popular location for photographers and filmmakers. It has often been used to represent exotic locations, including China and Kazakhstan, in popular franchises such as James Bond and video game character turned action star Lara Croft.

In Tomb Raider, a 100ft fall over a cliff was filmed at the Alexandra Slate quarry near Carmel, and a motorbike race was filmed at Pen Y Pass, which posed as the Great Wall of China, with a little help from CGI. The World Is Not Enough by James Bond was also filmed in the area.
