So you thought that my tradition to release a yearly Christmas song would be over once I released my album When Winter Comes last year? Think again! I’m happy to announce the release my new Christmas single Poem At Year’s End today, the first of Advent. As per tradition it’s not all that Christmassy, I guess I’ll never write that Santa’s Super Sleigh and live happily ever after, but that’s ok.
I asked my fans on Facebook what they thought I should write about this year, and many wanted something political. To be honest that made me feel exhausted. There has been so much politics, and so many fights the last few years that the last thing I wanted to do was to write a political Christmas song. So instead I decided to write something that everyone could listen to and enjoy with an open heart, and a calm mind. This is nothing more than a poem about the end of the year, and that is why I called it “Poem At Year’s End”. The beautiful cello harmonies by David Floer, and soaring horns by Tim Fleming might make you think of 60’s folk songs, like the tunes of Nick Drake.
But don’t forget! Even though my full length Christmas album When Winter Comes was released a year ago, it comes back to life every December. You can download it or buy a physical copy here!
Here’s what people said about it last year:
“She sings and plays with unprecedented confidence and control, and shares her Christmas music from her heart and soul. Her voice has a purity, with just a hint of Scandinavian inflection that adds a touch of exoticism, that is stirring. “When Winter Comes” is undoubtedly one of the top Christmas albums of 2017.”
– Merry and Bright!
“Sofia Talvik’s “When Winter Comes” is a treasure, a time capsule, a collection of life lessons, and a very bright light in the darkness.”
– Stubby’s House of Christmas
“This Sofia Talvik album has found a chink in the armour and its blessings, sentiment and elegance have been embraced.”
– Three Chords and The Truth
Happy Holiday Season!
