After select performances -- including one in Brooklyn, New York -- Hausswolff returned to the studio. In the fall of 2015, she released the video singles "Evocation" and "Come Wander with Me/Deliverance" as precursors to November's The Miraculous, a song cycle that touched on everything from gothic folk and pop music to black and death metal -- her massive pipe organ and vocals fronted a well-chosen backing band of rock and classical instrumentalists.
In 2017 she brought U.S. producer Randall Dunn to Copenhagen for nine days of sessions with her band and a 20th century pipe organ at Marmorkirken, Copenhagen's gorgeous marble rococo church. In December, she announced an album with a few cryptic details, the album title -- Dead Magic -- its cover, a poem by Sweden's Walter Ljungquist, and the doom-laden single "The Mysterious Vanishing of Elektra," followed by its video in January. In February, she dropped another track, "The Truth, The Glow, The Fall." The full-length Dead Magic was issued in early March of 2018. ~ Jason Birchmeier, Rovi
