Norwegian singer-songwriter Simen Mitlid will release his third album – Birds – on October 30, 2020.
Hailing from the woodlands of Os, Mitlidhas a proven a precocious talent for lush, dreamy indie-folk; emphasised by two sublime albums – 2017’s Everything is the Same & 2019’s Neutral.

While previous tasters ‘Weeks’, ‘Birds’ & ‘Murders’ resided in a more traditional folk avenue, ‘While Heaven Is on Fire’ ventures into more electronic territory as rich vocals effects soar above grandiose sweeping strings, gentle strum and warm folk sounds An intricately crafted and sincere, serene and tender indie-folk ballad brimming with heartfelt and tender emotion.
