More information: Tirill Mohn is a Norwegian Singer-songwriter based in Asker, near Oslo. A multi-instrumentalist and is best known for her part in the formation of legendary Norwegian Progressive Rock band White Willow during the mid 1990s. Tirill played violin and classical guitar on the band's debut Ignius Fatuus released in 1995.

This release is part of a re-release of her three albums to date, which are being made available outside Scandinavia and parts of Western Europe for the first time.

Um Himinjodur is Tirill’s 3rd album, and like the previous releases the music exists in a vivid, acoustic soundscape with harmonious cello and mellotron arrangements, beguiling electric guitars, dynamic percussion and enchanting vocal harmonies. The elements stretch from Norse Mythology through Mediterranean instrumentation, to a universal sound picture with a core of Nordic melancholy – all in a delicate mix of folk, progressive and ambient music.

For the first time, some of the lyrics are in Norwegian. The album title "Um Himinjodur" means "About Heaven" in Norwegian.
