Ane Brun's new music video for "Daring to Love" recenlty premieried on Noisey at http://bit.ly/1k75z6X and can be streamed and shared on youtube at http://youtu.be/v2o0nCLLDUQ. The track was written for the upcoming movie A Thousand Times Goodnight that was recently awarded the Special Grand Prix of the jury at Montreal Film Festival, and the video features Academy award-winning French actress Juliette Binoche and the "Game of Thrones" star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.
Ane Brun is set to embark on a North American tour with special guest Linnea Olsson, a cellist and singer who will support Brun as a featured musician. "I am very excited to perform my music in America," says Olsson. "I love touring in the states and I am curious about how the audience will receive my songs. I can't wait to get there." The tour is in celebration of Brun's new collection Rareties, out now on her own Balloon Ranger label; please see below for complete tour dates.
Brun's second collection of the year, Rareties follows the release of Songs 2003-2013 in May and is being praised by Stereo Subversion as "the proper monument for an artist intent on documenting an achievement" and by Ear Buddy as a "must listen." Both collections are celebrations of Brun's critically acclaimed and highly successful ten-year music career, and Rarities features lesser-known works spanning her time as a recording artist. Esquire recently premiered Brun's cover of Beyoncé's "Halo" and the track can also be streamed and shared via Soundcloud.
According to Brun, "Rarities is a compilation of songs and recordings that have either not been released, or have been released on other compilations or as singles. This is a way to empty our cupboards of recordings that have been lying around, and another way to mark my ten year anniversary as an artist." The collection includes covers of Björk and The Beatles, among others, as well as new versions of fan favorites and previously unreleased songs. See below for full track listing.
Rarities collects some of the more private moments from Brun's career. Her cover of "Halo" derives from a tradition of singing the song backstage to warm up on her 2009 tour with The Diamonds. The Beatles' "From Me To You" and Amerie's "1 Thing" were recorded alone in Brun's Stockholm studio. The piano version of "Oh Love," is a recording of a performance of the song for a small group of friends.
