Hør “På bursdagen din” i iTunes, Spotify eller WIMP.

Med fem albumutgivelser, flere låter med mye spilling på radio og lang fartstid som artist, tekstforfatter og komponist har Elin Furubotn sunget seg inn i mange hjerter med hverdagsromantiske tekster på Rogalands-dialekt.

Singelen er en smakebit på hennes kommende høst-album med hele 17 musikere fra Stavanger Symfoniorkester som bidrar.

Den første singelen fra Furubotns kommende album, ble skrevet etter at hun spurte sin snart utflytningsklare sønn om han kunne lage en spilleliste som gjestene kunne danse til i bursdagen hennes. ”Ja greit det, ka vil du ha?” spurte sønnen. Elin sa: ”Tja….hva med yndlingsgruppa di; Karpe Diem?”. Det er ikke alt mødre får lov til av tenåringsbarna sine, og som vanlig skildrer Elin Furubotn situasjoner mange kan kjenne seg igjen i med humor og varme.

Da ”På bursdagen din” skulle mikses i Propeller Studio i Oslo kom Elin opp med idéen om et mannskor i en sekvens av låten, og tekniker Mike Hartung var ikke vanskelig å be. Han spratt opp av stolen, kalte inn hele mannskapet i studioet med fem lydteknikere og assistenter, og mannskor var en realitet.

Resultatet har blitt en fengende sang, som skapt for radio.

Albumet til Elin Furubotn ventes til høsten.

  • Bad Hersfeld (German)October 25, 2013, 1:13 pm

    Moderner Jazz aus Skandinavien Bad Hersfeld. Die norwegische Sängerin Elin Furubotn gilt trotz ihres nicht kommerziellen Musikstils in ihrer skandinavischen Heimat als absolut radiotauglich. Dies liegt mit Sicherheit nicht zuletzt auch an ihren romantischen Songtexten. Gemeinsam mit ihrem Bühnenpartner Karl Seglem am Saxofon kreiert sie lebensfrohe Lieder, die voll von zarter Emotionalität, von wunderschönen Melodien [...]

  • MusicaJazz (Italy)May 26, 2012, 2:41 pm

    If you understand Italian:) Con il suo quinto album, Elin Furubotn esce per la prima volta dai confini discografici norvegesi. Come suona chiaro sin dai titoli, non si tratta delle solite jazz songs anglosassoni. Oltre alla lingua, anche le melodie portano l’impronta della loro terra d’origine, per quanto proiettate entro strutture e strumentazioni internazionali: virtù [...]

  • Jazzdimensions, Carina Prange (Germany)April 18, 2012, 11:26 am

    (Translated from the German original review) Elin Furubotn sings her songs in Norwegian: while she uses a phrase full, clear language about various dramatic and less dramatic unpredictabilities of life. She does this quite unpretentious, and even the instrumentation of the music on the album is quite discreet. And it is this lack of pomp [...]

  • INSIDE WORLD MUSIC (USA)April 16, 2012, 10:45 am

    “At any rate, Elin is the most innovative artist to come out of Norway in recent memory. ~ (Matthew Forss, April 2012)”. Norway’s talented singer/songwriter, Elin Furubotn, is joined with an excellent repertoire of musicians and jazzy instrumentation. Elin incorporates a folk and pop vein into the mix. The thirteen songs represent a plethora of [...]

The singer-songwriter describe her music on the album as: “crosses lines between jazz and singer-songwriter stuff, between rock and folk, but I don’t like to split my interests and passions up. And in scenes like [...]

  • AntiMusic (USA)April 5, 2012, 11:24 am

    This is Furubotn’s first international release so you can listen up and be among the first folks outside of Norway to dig her airy brand of acoustic-based pop music. Elin sings some of Heilt Nye Vei’s in English but there’s an exotica about the songs sung in Norwegian that make them the most appealing of [...]

  • Midwest Record (USA)April 4, 2012, 11:21 am

    Inhabiting a rarified spot somewhere between Edith Piaf, Rickie Lee Jones and Lisa Ekdahl, Furubotn finds her first international release appropriately named (in English) “New Path” as it takes her astray from the sounds that made her reputation in her native Norway. A singer/songwriter that will remind people of Joni Mitchell from her fourth album [...]

  • Global Music Consciousness (USA)April 1, 2012, 11:26 am

    In review–Norwegian Wood–Isn’t it good? When I hear the term Norwegian folk music, I usually think of traditional Norwegian music heavy on the hardanger fiddle and medieval folk ballads.  However, Norwegian folk can also refer to singer-songwriters such as Kari Bremnes, a Norwegian musical star, or so many others ranging from 20-years-of-age to well beyond [...]

    TRØNDERAVISA (V.Devik mars 2012) Her songs are melodious, warm and generous, expressing both melancholy and humour.

  • ØSTLENDINGEN (Nor. newspaper)March 17, 2012, 7:26 pm

    (Geir Hovensjø) She is playful, dares to explore her own imagination, and is very much herself. This time, her backup musicians are of a rather jazzy persuasion, with saxophonist Karl Seglem playing a vital role. The music is nicely varied.
