More information: Airbag co-founder, songwriter and lead guitarist, Bjørn Riis releases a new mini album, the follow up to the highly acclaimed 2017 release, "Forever Comes to an End".

Bjørn’s unique guitar playing has a centre role, with soaring leads and beautiful textures.

Bjørn explains: "I’ve always felt that the guitar is an extension of me and a more comfortable and natural way of expressing myself musically. I’m really happy and proud of the vocals this time and the duet with me and (Norwegian singer) Sichelle on "Drowning" is very emotional. Lyrically, "Coming Home" deals with the fear and insecurity of being forgotten by the people around you. You imagine all these dramatic scenes and wonder if you’ll ever be missed if something really was to happen."

"Coming Home" also feature a newly recorded semi-acoustic version of the title track of Bjørn’s 2014 solo debut, "Lullabies In A Car Crash", almost becoming a new song. The track features Airbag and Bjørn Riis Band touring guitarist Ole Michael Bjørndal on lead guitar.
