An ode to self respect
Norwegian pop artist Christine Ekeberg returns with “Not Sorry”, an unapologetic anthem filled with self love. With a versatile mixture of pop and rock which reminds of artists like Miley Cyrus and Billie Eilish, the track brings forth new sounds by the artist.
“The main topic is about no longer giving a f*ck when you’ve been giving too many f*cks for a long time”. Inspired by the singer’s personal experience, the song describes the empowering process of breaking free from draining people, “It’s about being a little more unapologetic, not in a badass way, but just cutting bullshit and exhausting people out of your life”.
Recorded in the At the Woods studios in Rena, Norway, the artist enlisted the help of songwriter Sindre Timberlid Jenssen with the writing process and producer Christian Østmoe for the recording process.
An overachiever performing artist, Christine Ekeberg has been participating in contests from an early age. She has also been active as a songwriter throughout her career. Her latest participation at the International Songwriting Competition in 2020 took her to the contest’s semifinals.
Ekeberg also collaborated with several European EDM producers, among them Ljung (Sweden) with the song “Under Water”. The 2018 hit has reached over a million streams.
Her topliner collaboration with Ljung connected Christine Ekeberg to Gothenburg-based Rexius Records, a label she has been signed to since 2019. She’s now preparing for the release of “Not Sorry” on August 26th.
