New album from Tine Thing Helseth
When Tine Thing Helseth now is releasing her new album ”Never Going Back”, we’ll hear something completely different from
what we’ve heard from her earlier. For the very first time on a recorded album she sings, and the songs are written by herself.
The album is produced by Mathias Eick and will be released in connection with Tine’s 30th anniversary and concert in the
Norwegian Opera in Oslo (20th of August).
A creative process
“All the songs on my new album are from the same period in my life. They are all about the same. The experiences have the
same feelings, colors, thoughts, descriptions. It’s as if they’re all connected, and they all try to describe the same – but in
different ways. Therefore, are the songs and sounds in the same landscape. They simply belong in the same world. Never
Going Back is to me a great description of this specific time which has been, and which I will not return to” – Tine Thing Helseth.
The road to this album has been a creative process that was launched by a hugh lust and need to create something. It started
with a couple of songs, and then it just kept coming. The songs on the album are written by Tine herself, some of them in
collaboration with Jarle Storløkken.
New experience in the studio
It was a brand new experience for Tine to be in a recording studio with her own songs and her own band, and something
completely different from the classical albums she has previously recorded.
”It has been amazing to be in the studio with these brilliant musicians. I love the feeling that they each put their own stamp on
my music and hear how they perceive and understand it. The collaboration with Mathias has been magical. We soon
understood each other. He understood my thoughts and wishes. Then he took it forward and gave so much to what has now
become the identity of the record. We fell in love in the same sounds and went in the same direction”.
