Multiple Norwegian Grammy Award winning artist Ane Brun has announced a new album titled, ‘Leave Me Breathless’ scheduled for release on October 6th via Balloon Ranger Records.

Ane shared a track from the new album today, a cover version of Radiohead’s “How To Disappear Completely.”

I´m a huge Radiohead fan,” explains Ane. “They are one of the bands that keep inspiring me over and over, and I have a deep respect for them. And I also really love this song! And as it turned out I got a request to perform it at a very emotional occasion. I was asked to play at the funeral for Crispin Bevington, one of the five people who were killed in the Stockholm terrorist attack of April 7, 2017,” Crispin and his wife loved this song, and she specifically asked me to perform it at the ceremony. I later recorded it in the Atlantis studio in Stockholm with keyboardist Klabbe Hörngren of Swedish jazz/electronica project Klabbes Bank. I felt that this turned out so beautiful and I wanted to include it on my album to honour Crispin´s memory.” Listen to it here.

 

Love and romance have never been themes Ane Brun has shied away from, her songs frequently overflowing with candid, confessional insights. Nonetheless, Brun confides, “the whole project started with me falling head over heels with someone new. I recorded cover songs for this person because, quite simply, I was overwhelmed by emotions. The love story was short, but, when it ended, I continued the project. The original idea had been to interpret love songs, romantic songs, but, in the end, there are a few with other themes as well.”

Leave Me Breathless’ features intimate versions of classic works from Foreigner, Bob Dylan, Radiohead, Elvis Presley, The Righteous Brothers, Nick Cave, Joni Mitchell, Sade, Mariah Carey and many more.

The album was recorded in various locations, with the earliest songs taped alone at home with just a guitar and a single microphone. Once it became clear Ane was making an album, she brought in Anton Sundell (an up and coming producer/technician and long-time road crew member) and Johan Lindström (of regular collaborators and bandmates Tonbruket), to join forces with her in helping develop the record’s sound, and a further handful of musicians – including Martin Hederos (Tonbrucket, Soundtrack Of Our Lives) – to add to the arrangements.
