Singer/songwriter Ane Brun has released a new video, for “Crumbs.” The clip was directed by Stian Andersen. Brun recently released two new LPs, After The Great Storm and How Beauty Holds The Hand of Sorrow, which were originally intended to be a double album until ultimately deciding to separate into two collections.
“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.”
Ane Brun has released twelve studio albums over the last fifteen years via her own imprint, Balloon Ranger Records. 2017’s Leave Me Breathless was a collection of covers, featuring reinterpreted versions of hits from Radiohead, Joni Mitchell, Nick Cave, Bob Dylan and more. That same year, Brun was invited to perform at the Nobel Prize Dinner and Polar Music Prize Ceremony, and in 2018 at the Nobel Peace Prize Ceremony.
