Ane Brun released her sixth studio album ‘It All Starts With One’ in the U.S. on November 1st via [PIAS] America, following European release dates in September. The album’s lead single is ‘Do You Remember’. It debuted at #1 in both Brun’s native Norway and in her adopted homeland of Sweden.
‘It All Starts With One’ Track Listing:
1. “These Days”
4. “Do You Remember”
5. “What’s Happening with You and Him”
8. “The Light from One”
9. “Oh Love”
Ane Brun is out with the music video to her new single ‘Do You Remember’, off the Molde, Norway singer songwriter’s forthcoming Balloon Ranger Recordings AB release ‘It All Starts With One’. Though ‘Do You Remember’ is the first chapter released from a short film based to music from the new album, it is the third chapter in the film that houses no fewer than four orchestrated songs to be premiered in autumn 2011.
“Ane’s music is like a great ocean housed under the roof of a great old theater, where pictures are hung from the threads of the music shooting out, so it really does the job itself,” director Magnus Renfors explained. “That said, the images require a certain height and a substantively dramatic level, otherwise the music, sometimes so sublime and skin tingling, can rush over the head of the visual aspects. Ane and I have done stuff together since 2003 and already on the last album we talked about doing something bigger, more coherent, and this time it was really the one.”

Ane Brun has been invited to join Peter Gabriel on his ‘New Blood Tour’, which will hit Europe, Canada and the US this spring. Gabriel and a large orchestra will perform songs from his new album ‘Skratch My Back’ and also a set of classic Peter Gabriel songs in an orchestral setting. Gabriel discovered Brun when they both performed at the Nelson Mandela ‘46664’ concert in Tromsø, Norway, in 2005.
Ane, on tour in Spain at the moment, said of the opportunity:
I’m very honored to go on tour with Peter Gabriel. I’ve listened to his music ever since I was ten years old and borrowed my older brother’s ‘So’ album. Many of his songs are absolute favorites of mine! I deeply respect him as a songwriter, musician and also his engagement in societal and human rights issues.
