2013 Eurovision winner Emmelie de Forest from Denmark has returned to the spotlight with a new look and a new single: Sanctuary.

Emmelie de Forest took her time to work on new music and is now ready to release her latest song, titled Sanctuary. Evolving as an artist, Emmelie de Forest shows her versatility through her new single and a fresh look.

Emmelie de Forest is very excited about her new track, and says about it:

A Sanctuary could be many different things. To me, it’s all the ideas that pop up in your head and then suddenly you see them transform from a feather in your mind to actual wings. It’s really the feeling of creating something, weather it be a song, a story or a painting. So to me a sanctuary is not just a place to hide from danger, but a place away from the world and the daily life where you can dream and create.

Sanctuary has been released today on Spotify, with the official music video now officially unveiled. Watch Emmelie’s latest track and the latest music video below!

Here you can also support the Danish artist’s latest release via iTunes, Deezer and Amazon.
