Siv Jakobsen has shared “Most Of The Time“, her first new music in two years since her sophomore album A Temporary Soothing. A track that came into life after Jakobsen revisited a place where a tumultuous relationship took place and she realised how much of an impact this time and place still had on her.

Although the lyrics of “Your face flickers in and out / it’s a blunted blade / I glue my eyes together / But that’s not better” may be reminiscing in a dark part of Jakobsen’s life and the trauma that’s she’s trying to escape there’s a gleam to the sound that she creates through mesmerising guitars and angelic vocals that inspires hope, washing over you like a radiant light. A hope that she tries to hold on to at the end of the track, “We are forever / I am better / Most of the time”.

Speaking about the new single Jakobsen said:

“I knew that in going there it might awaken some difficult memories, but I was completely taken aback by how intensely I felt pulled back into who I was and how I felt all those years ago. I realised I had some unpacking to do, so that I could begin to properly come to terms with and understand those memories.
