Myrkur has unveiled her new song “Dronning Ellisiv.” The track was recorded during the Folkesange album sessions. The single is a reimagining of a song by Harald Foss, telling a tale of the Grand Prince Yaroslav of Novgorod and his daughter Elsiv of Kiev.
The press release further explains:
Elisiv would later marry King Harald of Norway and become Queen Consort of Norway in the 1040’s. Immersive and ethereal, the mood of Dronning Ellisiv dives into the source material and continues to evoke the sounds of expansive folk music, breathing new life into an old Nordic tale.”
