”The Return” was the last song to be included on the album. To me, it carries a necessary light in complicated times. It was written on an old piano during soundcheck at a show in Sweden, January 2020, just before most venues closed down.
The song is a return to intuition. To trusting that you are ok. Whoever you became in life, no matter your dreams or expectations, you are ok.
I found an old cassette of my grandfather singing Swedish folk songs from his youth. His voice ends the song. They used to go from house to house in the countryside, singing, hoping to receive gifts. People were here before us and people will follow. The road was here all along, trust it and start walking.
