Kjetil Mørland, known professionally as Mørland (born 3 October 1980), is a Norwegian singer-songwriter.

Prior to launching his solo career, Mørland served as the frontman of British band Absent Elk, releasing their first (and to date, only) album Caught in the Headlights in 2009. Absent Elk notably toured as a supporting act for groups like Girls Aloud, The Script, and The Hoosiers.

As a solo act, Mørland is best known for representing Norway in the Eurovision Song Contest 2015 alongside vocalist Debrah Scarlett, with the song "Monster Like Me". They ultimately finished eighth in the final, giving Norway one of their better results of the decade.

Mørland has since made two other attempts for Eurovision via Norway's selection format Melodi Grand Prix; once as the songwriter of Rebecca's "Who We Are" in 2018, which placed second to fellow MGP alumnus (and Eurovision 2009 victor) Alexander Rybak, and the other as a solo act in 2019 with the song "En Livredd Mann", which he claimed to be his first-ever composition in his native tongue; the latter lost to "Spirit in the Sky" by KEiiNO.
