Norwegian songwriter Ane Brun
premiered her gorgeous new video for "Worship
" with NPR on Friday, and now we're pleased to announce the details of her 2012 North American Tour. She's coming over to tour in support of her new album, It All Starts With One, which is due out May 1st via [PIAS] America. "Worship
" is one of the album's highlights, which is a wonderfully understated duet with the unparalleled José González.
We also recently shared the free MP3 for "Do You Remember," which is a euphoric, almost tribal track characterized by three drummers and backing vocals from fellow Scandinavians First Aid Kit. Ane's inimitable voice makes fellow fragile and beautiful tracks like "Oh Love" and "Life Line" spectacular. Album closer "Undertow" is a widescreen epic that brings the album to a heart-wrenching climax.
Much like her music, the path that led Ane Brun
to It All Starts With One was peaceful, unhurried and full of unexpected, subtle surprises. It's taken her from her small Norwegian hometown of Molde, to Barcelona where she was a street performer, and across the US last year supporting Peter
Gabriel and singing on his New Blood album. The adventures culminated with the making of her new album It All Starts with One, a platinum hit in Norway for which she just won their Grammy equivalent, the Spellemann award, for best female artist.
