Ane Brun and Linnea Olsson to Play the Highline Ballroom, 2/12

Related: Ane Brun, Linnea Olsson, Highline Ballroom

Ane Brun and Linnea Olsson will play the Highline Ballroom February 12.

Ane Brun's "Don't Leave" provides the soundtrack to Chevrolet and the American Cancer Society's 2014 Super Bowl ad, celebrating cancer survivors and dedicated to World Cancer Day. In conjunction with the ad, supporters can visit http://chevy.com/purpleroads to color their profile pictures on Facebook and Twitter purple in exchange for a one dollar donation to the American Cancer Society. Of the ad, Brun says, "I'm so proud! If you can, please help-every purple profile picture on social media means a donation to the fight to cure cancer!"

Brun will embark on her first North American tour since 2012 on February 11, celebrating the release of her latest collection, Rarities, out now on her own Balloon Ranger label. With support from Swedish cellist Linnea Olsson, a longtime collaborator, the tour includes stops in Los Angeles and New York; please see below for complete tour dates.

Brun's second collection of the year Rareties follows the release of Songs 2003-2013 in May. 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.

Brun was born in Norway and lives in Stockholm. She has recorded eight albums over the last ten years. In 2005, her second album A Temporary Dive earned her critical acclaim at home and abroad and the Norwegian Grammy for Best Female Artist. Her third album The Changing Of The Seasons was recorded in Iceland by Valgier Sigursson. Songs 2003-2013 was a confirmation of Brun's achievements as a songwriter, and Rarities furthers that proclamation, celebrating the less-known corners of Brun's catalog.

SPIN is premiering the video for "Dinosaur," a track off of Swedish cellist Linnea Olsson's debut U.S. album, Ah!m The video was directed by fellow Swede, Alana da Silva.
