Elise talks about the new single:
I am so pleased to introduce the sixth release of the This Is Not My Music-series, «Home». I wrote this song in my apartment in Brooklyn last year, right before I was about to head back home to Norway. I was feeling excited, sad and nervous at the time. Excited because I was going home to see all my friends and family, sad because I was about to end the greatest journey of my life (so far), nervous because I wondered what kind of expectations people would have. I'd been living in New York for six months, writing and composing new songs, and I sure hoped that people would be interested to hear them. One of the lines in the song goes «What will they think, will they mind, will they even notice». By returning to Norway, I was about to burst the bubble I'd been living in. It was time to bring all of my songs to life, and it felt so good and so nerve wrecking at the same time.

I used my Baby Taylor-guitar when we recorded this song, which is the very first guitar I ever bought. The drums is played by Ole Tollefsen, the bass is played by Simen Ytre-Arne and the rest is done by Ashley Stubbert (the producer) and myself. We also drank a lot of tea during this particular recording. I hope you will enjoy it.
