Norwegian songwriter Ane Brun’s new single “Don’t Run and Hide” debuts; listen/share HERE. The track is the first to be released from her forthcoming new album, out this fall via Balloon Ranger Records.
“Don’t Run and Hide” was the first song written specifically for the forthcoming new album. Brun explains, “I wanted this to ‘stand on the shoulders’ of When I’m Free and kind of look across over Leave Me Breathless and beyond. The key to our vision was emotional music that also makes you want to move.” The track was produced by Brun alongside Anton Sundell and long-term collaborator Martin Hederos.
Ane Brun has released twelve studio albums over the last fifteen years via her own imprint, Balloon Ranger Recordings. 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 the Nobel Peace Prize Ceremony. NPR’s All Things Considered called 2015’s When I’m Free her “best record yet… her most sonically ambitious…” Her second album A Temporary Dive, which was released in 2005, earned her the Norwegian Grammy for Best Female Artist. The New York Times raved of 2008’s Changing of the Seasons, saying the album “offers the kind of comfort that only well-versed singer-songwriters can give. An album full of sad songs to revel in as the days grow shorter and colder, Seasons is Brun’s strongest work yet.”
