Siv Jakobsen Releases New Song “Tangerine”
- Norwegian singer-songwriter Siv Jakobsen released a new song “Tangerine” from her upcoming third album “Gardening” on October 20, 2022.
The track was written by Siv Kalland Jakobsen. Lyrically inspired by the work of Japanese author Haruki Murakami.
“I imagine this person trapped in a house, needing help and not being able to ask, then locking eyes with a neighbour and silently asking for help they’ll never get,” Jakobsen said of the song. “I imagined someone who was held against their own will inside a run of the mill suburban house, looking out from the front room and willing for someone to come let them out. This someone is mentally stuck, a deer in headlights, scared and frozen. Not wanting to stay but unable to leave - worthless in another's world, like a carefully peeled, squashed and tossed tangerine.”
The new album comprises 12-track, produced by Hans Olav Settem and Simen Mitlid, featuring instrumental contributions from Emma Gatrill and Marcus Hamblett.
It is set to be released on January 20, 2023.
- The album's title comes from the 10th track “Gardening”, but is a thematic link throughout the album. “This record is me doing an intense amount of emotional gardening,” she said. “I was just raking through my mind and pulling stuff out, and then it grew back again, so I pulled it out again, whilst in real life I was tending to my modest but lovely garden in my home in Oslo.”
She continued, “Gardening tackles a particular relationship from my past, and its effect on me in the past, present and future. I found great pleasure and comfort in the physical task of gardening, weeding and tending to my patio of flowers and edible plants, and their colours and metaphors seeped into my writing. It is a record I am immensely proud of, and one that I hope can make others who have been through similar things feel seen and less alone.”
