The single will be released on April 15th and will be available on iTunes, Spotify, and others.
“I wrote ‘Keep Calm’ shortly after coming back to Jerusalem from five years in the United States,” says Ettun. “At the time, it was very clear to me that Jerusalem is where I wanted to be, but at the same time, there was the fear of not being able to keep in touch with my colleagues and friends in the USA as much. This song tells the story of the great joy of coming back home, with the fear of the future – it was a beautiful and fragile moment captured”.
Throughout the next few months, Ettun will be releasing more singles from the coming album, which is expected to be fully out by the trio’s summer tour in the USA and Europe. “We have our little communities of people who like our music, and we love coming back to the same places when we have new music”, says Ettun. “We love to play to people who come to listen and experience the music with us, whether it’s Boston, New York, Seoul, Budapest or Berlin”.
