Det siste, Poems of despair (Kaip music, mai 2017), utforsker Klagesangenes poetiske lengsel og sorg.Debutalbumet til Sara Forslund, Water became wild, kom ut i 2015 på det nederlandske indieselskapet Volkoren, og havnet på flere “beste album i 2015”-lister. Samarbeidet med produsent og lydtekniker John Wood, som har jobbet med artister som Nick Drake, Fairport convention, Pink Floyd og mange flere, har resultert i en opplevelse som setter varige spor. På SÅ vil Sara spille sanger fra det første soloalbumet sitt, men også sanger fra Summer is like a swallow, som kommer ut våren 2018. Musikken til Sara Forslund beskrives som intim, drømmete og melankolsk, inspirert av poesi, mystikk og natur.
