Mit „Devotional“ zeigt Høyem nicht nur, was für ein meisterhafter Songwriter er ist, der Song erhält auch den musikalischen Beitrag des großen norwegischen Jazztrompeters Nils Petter Molvær, der die Traumlandschaft mit seinem unverkennbaren Sound färbt. Høyem erzählt:
„“Devotional“ came together in my old studio in Oslo with Christer Knutsen. I sang and played guitar, while Christer sorted the sound, and played all the other instruments. As the song started to take shape there was a spot for a proper solo. We actually considered adding a virtuoso harmonica solo, played by someone who really knows their instrument. But then somehow Nils Petter Molvær ́s name came up, probably inspired by The Blue Nile and their use of jazz-trumpet.
I have wanted to collaborate with him for a long time now. The distinct sound he lends to both Devotional and one other song, elevates them to a special place for me on the new EP. He is one of the most style defining artists in modern Norwegian jazz, with a big name in the rest of the world, so it is a real honour for me to have done this with him.”
