Sigrid has shared a festive holiday version of her beloved song, “Home To You (This Christmas).” The original – an ode to her hometown and family – soared to No.2 on the iTunes UK charts after it soundtracked the 2021 Olympics BBC highlights.
“‘Home To You (Christmas)’ has always had a Christmas spirit since we wrote it. It’s about my hometown and the house I grew up in with my family. I always go back for Christmas, so it felt natural to make a Christmas version. I hope it’ll give some cozy vibes when it’s getting darker outside,” says Sigrid.
The Norwegian pop star also gave a stunning performance of “Home To You” on Stand Up to Cancer’s televised fundraiser event. She also played to a packed Wembley Arena with fellow artists and friends including Griff, Sam Fender, and AJ Tracey covering “Times Like These” for BBC Radio 1’s Out Out Live. Additionally, she performed new favorites “Burning Bridges” and “Mirror.”
It took quite a journey for Sigrid to arrive at her second album. Last year, while Sigrid was in LA working on the songs that would become the follow-up to 2019’s Sucker Punch, she suddenly had to return home to Norway due to the global pandemic. On her flight, she realized she had the genesis of “Mirror,” the kaleidoscopic single that is out now via Island Records.
Since arriving onto the world stage in 2017 with “Don’t Kill My Vibe,” the 24-year-old has toured the globe, amassed over 1.2 billion streams, and sold 1 million album units, laying the foundation for highly anticipated new music.
“Mirror” was written for early evening festival slots that have become Sigrid’s definitive stage, and the thousands of fans who will “feel the bass in their chest” says Sigrid, adding, “I walk into the studio and know I want to make a big chorus!” “Mirror is a track evocative of Sigrid’s calling card of zooming in on the personal whilst speaking to the universal: “I love who I see, looking at me in the Mirror.”
