Description

180g transparent vinyl. 'Leave Me Breathless', the seventh studio release by multiple Norwegian Grammy Award winning artist ANE BRUN, is her most personal yet, even though it consists of fourteen cover versions. BRUN confides 'The original idea had been to interpret love songs, romantic songs but, in the end, there are a few songs with other themes as well. It became a concept of simplifying or interpreting emotional songs in my own way.' Initially, it was a short-lived romance that influenced the songs she picked, like Lucinda Williams' 'Right In Time', Bob Dylan's 'Make You Feel My Love' or her extraordinarily tender rendition of Nick Cave's 'Into My Arms'. 'Girl From The North Country' came about after she was invited to perform at a tribute show at Stockholm's National Theatre to celebrate Bob Dylan's Nobel Prize for Literature. The tracks by Sade ('By Your Side') and Radiohead ('How To Disappear Completely') were chosen for a rather more sombre reason. 'I was asked to play at the funeral for Crispin Bevington, one of the five people who were killed in the Stockholm terrorist attack of April 7, 2017,' BRUN explains. 'Crispin and his wife, Annika, loved these two songs, and she specifically asked me to perform them at the ceremony.' Later that same day BRUN recorded the two songs. Then there's BRUN's revelatory, a cappella version of Joni Mitchell's 'Big Yellow Taxi', as well as Mariah Carey's 'Hero', Foreigner's 'I Want To Know What Love Is', Maria McKee's 'Show Me Heaven', Shakespears Sister's 'Stay', The Righteous Brothers' 'Unchained Melody' and more. 'I didn't listen to any of the riginal' versions while planning my own interpretation,' she says. 'I try to recreate the song with my own voice, and with how I feel or hear the song in my head.' It is BRUN's ability to find meaning and sentiment in her chosen songs that ensures LEAVE ME BREATHLESS is never less than exquisite.[cargo]
