After the success of their previous collaboration "Skuggsjá"; Ivar Bjørnson (Enslaved) and Einar Selvik (Wardruna) are now following up with an imposing new piece entitled "Hugsjá". The word 'Hugsjá' means to see with, or within, the mind - and it reflects the idea that one's mind has the potential to see further than the eyes can reach. By weaving together indigenous and contemporary thoughts, sounds and instruments, they are inviting you on a vivid journey - exploring the distant history and traditions along coastal Norway.

Hugsjá was first commissioned by, and performed at, Bergen International Festival in 2017, as part a series of concerts named Nordvegen ("the northern road"); inspired by local history and traditions in each of the places visited. Ultimately the material was recorded and became this full-length album.

"Hugsjá" will also be available as:
- Blue colored 2LP Gatefold - Limited to 250 copies, webstores exclusive
- Silver colored 2LP Gatefold - Limited to 250 copies, webstores exclusive
