Siv Jakobsen unveils soothing new single "Island"

28 February 2020, 13:05 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Siv Jakobsen is back with new single "Island", the second single to be lifted from her forthcoming album A Temporary Soothing.

"Island" lands after last month's lead single "Fear The Fear".

Jakobsen says of the new track, "At the song's core sits my need for creative freedom. It's a sort of reminder to always keep my creativity free and my personal space personal, to retain the freedom to make the music I want to make, work with the people I want to work with, and let them in turn be creatively free when collaborating with me."

She's also shared a one-minute video of the recording process of the new track, which is shot by Jørgen Nordby.

A Temporary Soothing will be Jakobsen's second album, after her 2017 debut The Nordic Mellow. It's produced by Chris Bond (Ben Howard, Nick Mulvey), and mixed by Zach Hanson (Bon Iver, Tallest Man on Earth), and was written and recorded over the course of a year.

Jakobsen says of the new record, "It's a way for me to look back and see what I have been going through, both the good and the bad. What I hope for is that people can take it and understand what they have been going through personally, too."

"Island" is out now. Siv Jakobsen's A Temporary Soothing album lands 24 April via U OK?, and is available to pre-order now. She plays London's Courtyard Theatre on 19 May. Find out more.
