Ane Brun Releases New Single 'Honey'

ANE BRUN has announced details of a brand new single, 'Honey', released by her label, Balloon Ranger Recordings.

Listen below!


Honey is the fifth taste of her as-yet-untitled eighth studio album, which will represent her first of original material since 2015's acclaimed When I'm Free. Due in stores this autumn, it follows 2017's exquisite collection of cover versions, Leave Me Breathless. BRUN embarks on a lengthy European tour in October.

"I'm so proud to announce the release of "Honey", the fifth song from my upcoming album!

I had a pen pal for many years. We started writing to each other when we were about 13 and kept it going for about a decade. The letters faded away as the age of emails took over, but those handwritten notes from our teens were long, intense and personal.

In our thirties we decided to swap our old letters to each other, and soon after a shoebox full of thick envelopes arrived in the mail. Reading through my own words opened up a lot of doors to memories I had long forgotten. In that same box was a cassette tape. Luckily I had held on to my old Walkman, so I dug it out and excitedly pressed play...

There it was! The light, clear voice of my 18-year-old self. As the tape rolled, my jaw dropped. Her energy struck me and I was filled with love for this young, and in many ways innocent, version of myself - this girl talking non-stop in a boundless flow of words and emotions. I was reminded of how I was back then, of how I dealt with things, and of how I've learned to do things differently. But it also reminded me of the lightness and the giggles that were such a big part of that time, and that I for many years had missed out on while mapping out my life as an adult.

While listening back, I realized that the woman I am today had reconnected with the girl on the tape, and that simple act had made me feel in some way more whole. I decided to write a love song to my young self that day! This is Honey."

Honey follows the serene Song for Thrill and Tom released last month,
Feeling Like I Wanna Cry released in April and cathartic lullaby, Trust in March as Ane releases a song per month during lockdown.

Ane Brun will play live this December in UK at the following dates:

08 - Glasgow St Luke's
09 - Manchester Academy 2
10 - London Shepherds Bush Empire
