Rasmussen will represent Denmark at Eurovision 2018 with the song “Higher Ground”. The song is viking pop-rock with an epic feel. This will most definitely appeal to Game of Thrones and Viking fans!

Rasmussen resides in Western Denmark, where he works as a musical coach and a singer. He is known locally for his work in musicals and music shows and his style of music is predominantly rock.

“Higher Ground” is written by two Swedes, Niclas Arn and Karl Eurén. Both have written numerous songs for Melodifestivalen, but decided to try their luck across the Öresund this year.

“Higher Ground” tells the true story of the pacifistic viking – yes, apparently they can be found – Magnus Erlendsson from Orkney, who refused to fight in battle way back in 1098. Instead, he believed in resolving struggles peacefully and in a non-violent way.

And that is exactly the message of the song: “Be the first to turn around – Take the leap to land on higher ground”. Be tolerant and listen to each other, conflicts should be solved in a peaceful way!

Higher Ground Lyrics

Ships in the making
Bound for a distant shore
World for the taking
Man gone forever more

Boarding and setting sail
Yet victory won’t prevail

Freeze the arrow in the air
Make your mark and leave it hanging there
Be the first to turn around
Take the leap to land on higher ground
(Taka stökk til hærri jörð)

Call in, surrender
Still it won’t feel like defeat
Men laying down their swords
Each of their own accord

Freeze the arrow in the air
Make your mark and leave it hanging there
Be the first to turn around
Take the leap to land on higher ground

Raise the banner to the sky
Face the fear and hold your head up high
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh

Take the leap like you were bound for higher ground
(Taka stökk til hærri jörð)

Freeze the arrow in the air
Make your mark and leave it hanging there

Freeze the arrow in the air
Make your mark and leave it hanging there
Be the first to turn around
Take the leap to land on higher ground, yeah

Be the first to turn around
Take the leap and land on higher ground
