Ane Brun announces new single


ANE BRUN has announced details of a brand new single, ‘We Need A Mother‘, released by her label, Balloon Ranger Recordings. It’s the eight taste of her upcoming studio albums After The Great Storm (out 30 October) and How Beauty Holds The Hand Of Sorrow (27 November).

Streaming here now across all platforms:

Taken from After The Great Storm, ‘We Need A Mother’ is a result of Ane’s thoughts and frustrations about the state of the world that she carries with her in her daily life, but the song itself was directly inspired by a corporate business conference Brun attended.

“In the opening speech, the importance of climate action and sustainability was emphasised, but then they chose to end the night with enormous and loud fireworks, costing millions, exploding over the water”, explains Ane. “It reminded me of how we as individuals, businesses and societies so often practice double standards when it comes to our values and priorities, myself included; how hard it is to live a wholesome, sustainable life; and how we as grown-up humans can act like adolescents.

“It really seems like we need mature leaders to keep us on the right track. I remember feeling so frustrated, provoked and upset, and when I woke up the next day I wrote this song. It took me a few hours, and after I had finished, I felt relieved and calm. Music is definitely a way for me to channel what’s going on around me.”

As with many of the songs on Ane Brun’s upcoming albums, ATGS and HBHTHOB, ‘We Need A Mother’ feels so apt for the time we’re in right now, in 2020. “More than ever, we need authentic leaders. More than ever we need to stand together,” concludes Brun.

You can pre-order both albums here.
