Marit Larsen – Coming Home

I have a history with Marit Larsen, besides being an M2M fan — owning both Shades of Purple and The Big Room. I actually remember getting in touch with her manager during the release of Under the Surface because I wanted to get an interview for my puny personal blog. I remember I sent the questions, but nothing came of it, of course.

Marit is about to release her third studio album, Spark, and I have already pre-ordered it on Amazon. However, I am dying because Amazon moved the estimated time of arrival from mid-December to late December. The time is killing me.

As an observation, Coming Home seems a lot more pop-rock than Marit’s previous singles. There’s a distinct break-y quality to her voice too, maybe it’s the way she overlays her own voice. Despite that, there are style elements in her music that make this sound like a logical evolution in her music. It’s different, but it’s still Marit.

I find it interesting that I always seem to find something in her lyrics to highlight. For example, her song Ten Steps [1]. She’s about to break someone’s heart, but her music sounds so happy. I love the opening line in Coming Home, “I wonder if you know when you kissed me like that you ruined me for anyone else.

In the end, I really think Marit sounds really happy on this song. I don’t think I’ve ever heard her not talk about break-ups or just starting a relationship. This is a song about how  it is so comfortable to be with someone that, well, it feels like Coming Home.

There’s a YinYueTai version available.
