When Tine Thing Helseth releases her new album, ”Never Going Back”, we’ll hear something completely different from what we’ve heard from her before.

The album is produced by Mathias Eick and will be released 18th August in connection with Tine’s 30th anniversary and concert in the Norwegian Opera, Oslo, on 20th August.


“All the songs on my new album are from the same period in my life. They are all about the same. The experiences have the same feelings, colours, thoughts, descriptions. It’s as if they’re all connected, and they all try to describe the same – but in different ways. Therefore, are the songs and sounds in the same landscape. They simply belong in the same world. Never Going Back is to me a great description of this specific time which has been, and which I will not return to.”

The road to this album has been a creative process that was launched by a hugh lust and need to create something. It started with a couple of songs, and then it just kept coming. The songs on the album are written by Tine herself, some of them in collaboration with Jarle Storløkken.


It was a brand new experience for Tine to be in a recording studio with her own songs and her own band, and something completely different from the classic albums she has previously recorded.

”It has been amazing to be in the studio with these brilliant musicians. I love the feeling that they each put their own stamp on my music and hear how they perceive and understand it. The collaboration with Mathias has been magical. We soon understood each other. He understood my thoughts and wishes. Then he took it forward and gave so much to what has now become the identity of the record. We fell in love in the same sounds and went in the same direction.”


Following her 2013 BBC Proms debut performance of Matthias Pintscher’s Chutes d’étoiles with the BBC Scottish Symphony, Norwegian trumpeter Tine Thing Helseth has rapidly established herself as one of the foremost trumpet soloists of our time, garnering critical acclaim for her soulful, lyrical sound and collaborative approach to music-making.

An artist who challenges the boundaries of genre with an intensely creative, open-minded philosophy, Tine has worked with some of the world’s leading orchestras to date, including the NDR Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, SWR Symphonieorchester Stuttgart, Gürzenich-Orchester Cologne, Tonkünstler-Orchester Vienna, Philharmonia, BBC Philharmonic, Rotterdam Philharmonic, Oslo Philharmonic, Danish Radio Symphony, Bergen Philharmonic, Helsinki Philharmonic, Gothenburg Symphony, Swedish Radio Symphony, and the Orchestre philharmonique de Luxembourg. Tine also enjoys working with an increasing number of chamber orchestras, namely the Munich Chamber, Australian Chamber, and Zurich Chamber orchestras, as well as the Mozarteum Salzburg and the Hong Kong Sinfonietta.
