Ane Brun is pleased to announce that she and her band will open Peter Gabriel’s upcoming North American tour. The 16-date tour dubbed “Back to Front” will celebrate the 25th anniversary of his classic So which he will perform from start to finish — plus “some of his other biggest hits”. Ane has been collaborating with director Magnus Renfors on a film “One” based on music from her recently released album It All Starts with One. Watch the new video for “Words”, which is also the prologue to the film, on YouTube and Vimeo.
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. The lead single, “Do You Remember” features First Aid Kit, and the album also includes “Worship,” a powerful duet with Jose Gonzalez. Ane Brun has created an album full of struggles and the strength it takes to move forward. It All Starts With One is a revelatory work by an uncompromising artist at the height of her powers.
