Elvellon state:
“’A Vagabond’s Heart’ is based on a very old idea that goes way back to the early days of ELVELLON. We finally got back to the material during the songwriting for Ascending in Synergy because we knew we had a little treasure there. 
Early on, even before the lyrics were written, many people around us saw it as a potential first single. Now, with the final lyrics and the song’s theme of ‘finding yourself’ being so important to the whole album and the album title, we’ve wholeheartedly agreed.”

Elvellon about “Ascending in Synergy”:
“We are incredibly excited to see how our fans will receive Ascending In Synergy. A lot has happened since our debut album and the songwriting process has changed a lot. It still feels like 100% ELVELLON to us, but the dynamics have expanded. It has become more orchestral and more metal at the same time. Also, lyrically we no longer stick to a single concept, but the songs are held together by a common thread.”
