Siv Jakobsen announces new album // drops new single Jack Press January 23, 2020 Albums 102 Norwegian singer-songwriter Siv Jakobsen has returned from the wilderness to announce her new album ‘A Temporary Soothing.’ The follow-up to 2017’s The Nordic Mellow will wash over us on the 24th April via U OK? Teaming up with producer Chris Bond (Ben Howard, Nick Mulvey) and mixer Zach Hanson (Bon Iver, Tallest Man On The Earth), Siv Jakobsen has crafted a beautifully intimate exploration of fear, anxiety, change, and the struggle between being healthy and being productive. Along with announcing the album, Siv Jakobsen has released the first taste of it in new single ‘Fear The Fear.’ You can experience it right here: For Siv, this has been a cathartic creative experience: “‘Fear The Fear’ was born from a spiralling worry that I wouldn’t be able to create well if I was well, happy, content with myself and my life. It touches on my tendency to hang out in my own head and stay there, worrying about something in a constant, stressful loop. “Fear is a big element in my general state of being, and I’m often run by it. I had a thought that perhaps my good songs were be behind me if I was in a truly happy place and I couldn’t get away from this for a long time but writing this song helped me get that spiralling fearfulness out of my system.” Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) Related Leave a Reply Cancel ReplyYour email address will not be published.CommentName* Email* Website Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
