Return: Alexander Rybak back with new song
Alexander Rybak has returned with an experimental new song and video which has received a lot of praise from fans.
Inspiration was gained from Toothless in “How To Train Your Dragon” and it is now available for online streaming and purchasing.
Alexander Rybak is back with a new song Return. The new track was announced by Rybak himself on his official Facebook page. The song is experimental as it has been constructed solely using vocals and the violin.
The 2009 winner expressed on social media how he hopes his fans like the new video. In addition Rybak has stated that Return was inspired by the DreamWorks’ movie How To Train Your Dragon as the song is about ‘friendship and flying’.The lyrics to the video can be found on Alexander Rybak’s official website.
Return is Rybak’s first song since I Came To Love You which was released earlier this year.
The video sees Rybak as like a one man band as he performs his song on stage taking on the role of vocalist, percussionist and violinist. The video is simple, yet sweet and matched the style of the song perfectly.
