Newly released song November 2022 - "Hey Sister"
This is what Emelie Junsten says about the new release: It started in frustration that I saw several people in my vicinity who were on sick leave with fatigue syndrome. My sister eventually became one of those who went into the wall. Too much at work and at home and life did not go together. I wanted to write a song with an encouragement to all women who struggle in everyday life: What is your song? What's on your mind?
Here is my new song Hey Sister. You carry a universe within you. ” https://open.spotify.com/track/4gItFvMmuFLgXMbBvs14tU?si=LWOIvL2aThqPlEsBVn0-4A
