Two weeks after releasing their Melodi Grand Prix 2021 entry, “Monument”, KEiiNO have now released the official music video for the song. The music video was filmed in various locations across Norway in Autumn 2020, and showcases the spectacular Norwegian landscape and scenery.

Speaking of Monument, and of KEiiNO, Alexandra had this to say: “Through the music video we pay tribute to the amazing Norwegian nature, and our own monumental experiences in life and every-day-heroes. You can see me pick up a picture of us from Eurovision in 2019. When I joined KEiiNO I instantly got to new friends for life. The boys has really been part of realize my biggest dream, and has become a huge part of my life. They have become the monuments in my life.”

Fred Buljo, of Sami origin, and who provides joiking in all of KEiiNO’s songs has weighed in on Sami culture and KEiiNO: “Preserving the Sámi culture and joik has been the core of KEiiNO since the beginning. And being able to introduce joik to the world through “Spirit in the Sky” in 2019 was
extremely fun and touching.”
