About Hví grætur tú

In “Hví grætur tú” the Earth is crying and letting us know what it takes for her to be happy again. Vocalist Guðrun Sólja Jacobsen is (like the other’s from Deiggj) also from Tvøroyri, Suðuroy. The song ends with her singing “Give the children the Earth back” where a bunch of children then join her and Deiggj singing “Think about tomorrow”.

On February 18th, Deiggj worked on choir arrangements for the song, while streaming the landing of “Perseverance” on March. They then found it suitable to use the applause and cheering from the landing as the intro for the song about the Earth who cries. The lyrics have been laying in a drawer since the 80’s, but is unfortunately still just as relevant.
