Regarding "Vitkispá", Ivar Bjørnson comments on behalf of the band: "It was sure not easy to pick one song to premiere; we are extremely proud of them all. We chose 'Vitkispá', because this song represents the sound, the atmosphere, and energy on the entire album very well. It flows and ebbs, with Einar's signature vocals and my wall-to-wall guitars. 'Vitkispá' is the only song on the album sung in archaic Norse tongue, and deals with the cyclical nature of Norse mythology and existence; ebbing and flowing like nature and life itself. Check it out, you will not be disappointed!"
IVAR BJØRNSON & EINAR SELVIK’S SKUGGSJÁ are furthermore revealing the artwork and tracklist of 'Skuggsjá', which can both be viewed in the comments. The cover has been designed by the renowned Romanian artist Costin Chioreanu.
