Ane Brun Releases New Album “How Beauty Holds The Hand Of Sorrow”: Streaming
- Norwegian singer-songwriter Ane Brun released her 9th studio album “How Beauty Holds The Hand Of Sorrow” on November 27, 2020.
The album follows up previous album “After The Great Storm”, which was released on October 30th.
Both albums are her first LPs since 2017 “Leave Me Breathless”.
The album comprises of 9-track, co-produced by Ane Brun herself, Anton Sundell and Martin Hederos.
She recorded two albums before the COVID-19 pandemic started. But the sound is difference between two albums.
“After The Great Storm” features upbeat sound with synth, guitar, drums and piano. But, “How Beauty Holds The Hand Of Sorrow” features acoustic sound with piano, guitar and strings.
Ane Brun said, “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 albums.”
She continued, “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.”
She shared on social media, “'How Beauty Holds the Hand of Sorrow' is finally out! What a journey! Twelve singles and two albums released in the weirdest year ever! And I'm so grateful that I've had music to focus on through all of 2020. This album is co-produced by me, Anton Sundell and Martin Hederos.
