Faroese Musician Dedicates Song to Iceland

By Iceland Review

Faroese singer-songwriter Högni Lisberg has decided to dedicate one of the songs of his recently released album Haré! Haré! to the Icelandic nation, which he will follow up with concerts in Reykjavík tonight and on Sunday.

The song is called “Burstin’ Bubble” and covers the economic difficulties that the world is currently going through. With his song, Lisberg urges people to be courageous, saying there is more to life than “barbeque and greed,” as quoted in a Kimi Records press release.

Haré! Haré! has received considerable praise both in the Faroese and Danish press. The album was released in Iceland on April 29.

Tonight, Lisberg will perform in concert with his band at Grand Rokk. The concert begins at 10 pm and the band Ég will also perform. On Sunday Lisberg’s concert takes place at Sódóma Reykjavík at 9 pm. Tickets cost ISK 1,000 (USD 7.8, EUR 5.9).

“Burstin’ Bubble” can be downloaded for free here.
