Acclaimed Norwegian artist and songwriter Ane Brun is releasing two new albums: After The Great Storm is due October 30 and How Beauty Holds The Hand Of Sorrow is out November 27. They will both be released via her own Balloon Ranger Records; find additional info and pre-order both albums HERE.
Originally intended to be a double album, Brun’s time in quarantine during the pandemic allowed her to reassess this concept and ultimately decide to separate the recordings into two collections. “I’m so excited to finally share the news about my upcoming releases,” Brun says, “I’ve produced and recorded these albums mainly together with Martin Hederos and Anton Sundell… we had so many songs we loved, taped and ready, and none to throw away, so I decided to split them up into two separate experiences, into two separate albums.”
“Both albums deal with the bigger questions in life,” Brun describes, “but in 2020 these questions have become even bigger. Even though I wrote most of them before this whole pandemic started, I feel they all have a message that fits the situation we’re in: frustration over the state of the world, how to grieve for a loved one, existentialism, love, relationships, loneliness, inner struggles, sleepless nights…I guess they’re just about being human.”
Brun has released a host of tracks from the upcoming albums, including “Lose My Way,” “Take Hold Of Me,” “Song For Thrill and Tom,” “Feeling Like I Wanna Cry,” “Trust,” “Don’t Run and Hide,” and “Honey.” Check out all the videos she has released thus far HERE.
