The Norwegian singer and songwriter Ane Brun has announced details of two new albums, her first of original material since 2015’s acclaimed When I’m Free. The first album After The Great Storm will be released on October 30, 2020 and the second album How Beauty Holds The Hand Of Sorrow on November 27, 2020.
Ane Brun said about two new albums
I’m so excited to finally share the news about my upcoming releases. I’ve produced and recorded these albums mainly together with Martin Hederos and Anton Sundell. We started working on these recordings in September 2019, and by the end of it 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 album.
Both albums deal with the bigger questions in life. 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.”
