Norwegian pop songstress Iselin has released her new single, ‘Lost’. A deeply personal track, it’s the follow up to her debut, ‘Bathtub’, released in June.

Heartfelt and affecting, ‘Lost’ builds through swelling, emotional verses into stripped back and honest choruses. Delicate, sweeping synths accompany Iselin’s vocals amid subtle production and infectious hooks, with haunting and poignant lyricism striking a touching chord.

“Lost is probably one of the most personal and emotional songs I’ve ever written,” says Iselin. “That terrifies me a bit to be honest, but at the same time it feels good to release something that just came straight from the heart. I wrote it with the amazing songwriters and producers Mad Fun (Fanny Hultman & Madeleine Eliasson), and it was a very special day for me in the studio. I think and hope the song speaks for itself, but mainly it’s about letting go of something that meant a lot to you, and how it affects you in so many ways when you know that part of your life is over.” 

‘Lost’ is Iselin’s second solo release, following her debut single, ‘Bathtub’. Inspired by the same muse of honest lyricism that permeates her writing generally, the track was written about an emotionally tumultuous period of her life, and formed her own personal therapy. Throughout her writing, Iselin strives to create a universal and personal message that can be shared by her audience.

‘Lost’ and ‘Bathtub’ are the first releases from Iselin after she provided the vocals for Alan Walker’s huge hits ‘Faded’ and ‘Sing Me To Sleep’. Now returning with a wealth of new material, it’s clear that Iselin is ready to secure her place as a powerful new musical force.

Fresh from providing vocals on Alan Walker’s huge hits ‘Faded’ and ‘Sing Me To Sleep’, Iselin returns with her debut solo release, ‘Bathtub’. Conceived after an emotionally tumultuous period in her life, the track is a call to take care of yourself.

A minimalistic pop gem, the track is an undulating voyage of glistening vocals and subtle production, with captivating melodies and an infectious chorus.

“I’d done the singer-songwriter thing for a while and all of my friends started to get educations and stuff, and I kind of got insecure about music for the first time… whether I should do it or not… it all got a bit too much”, says Iselin Solheim. “I felt a bit stressed a while ago, and at the time I was supposed to have many sessions in Stockholm. After one of my sessions I retreated to my hotel bathtub to unwind, and was inspired to write the track.”

Taking her inspiration back to the studio the next day, she found a musical affinity with the idea of taking a moment to find some serenity in each day. “I have to remind myself sometimes that I can just take away all the negative thoughts and just focus on good stuff… just find those moments”, says Iselin.

The sentiment transcended the song, forming her own personal therapy and helping to overcome the stress she had been suffering with, and is one that she hopes will connect with her audience.

Returning with this new single, and a wealth of material to follow, it’s clear that Iselin is ready to secure her place as a powerful new musical force.
