Eurovision 2013 winner Emmelie de Forest from Denmark has released the official music video of History.

History is the title track of the latest mini-album by Emmelie de Forest, released earlier this year. In the accompanying music video, Emmelie de Forest shows her new look and sound, as well as looking back on her own history – in line with the song’s lyrics. Emmelie visits her childhood home in Mariager, sharing pictures of her youth.

Emmelie de Forest is very proud of her latest video, as she shared on Facebook:

So excited to tell you that the video for #History (the title track of my album) is out today! We filmed the video in my hometown Mariager, back in January. We also got to film at my old school, in my childhood home and other places around town that has a special meaning to me in one way or another. I had so much fun filming this video, which is the most personal one I’ve made so far. I think it’s perfect for Easter, a Holliday where many go back to their hometown and spend time with family, remembering ones roots. Hope you’ll enjoy watching it and wishing you all a Happy Easter!
