Zara Larsson is paving the way for the release of her third international studio album “Venus”, which is scheduled for a February 9th release.
Now, the talented pop star has a surprise for all fans in the form of a new EP, which will drop prior to the album.
Its title “Honor The Light”, and it will be released on December 1st. It will consist of the following 6 tracks:

The EP is scheduled to be part of her upcoming intimate Swedish performances of the same name and a filmed special premiering this Christmas. “Honor The Light” is a modern interpretation of the Swedish Lucia tradition. The performance will consist of three acts and will feature new acoustic versions of songs from her impressive catalog, along with classic Christmas songs and guest artists. It’s a celebration of light and culture that culminates in the kind of epic pop show that only Zara can deliver.
Prior to the release of the EP, Zara has now unveiled 2 of the new songs:
