One of the finest voices of the contemporary folk scene is back. Here is Ane Brun┤s third album "Changing of the Seasons". It was recorded more or less live at the legendary Atlantis Studio in Stockholm, and at producer Valgeir Sigurdsson┤s studio, the Greenhouse, in Reykjavik, Iceland. Sigurdsson┤s merits include artists like Bj÷rk, Sigur Ros, Maps, M˙m, Coco Rosie and Bonnie "Prince" Billy. "Changing of the Seasons" consists of 13 new tracks by Ane Brun. The album shows that Ane┤s mesmerizing voice has taken new and exciting turns, and it also reveals many proofs of her remarkable songwriting. Just listen to tracks like "The Puzzle", "Ten Seconds", "Lullaby for Grown-Ups", "The Fall" or "Don┤t Leave" and you┤ll know that this is something close to a classic album. The beautiful string arrangements are written by Danish composer Malene Bay-Landin and the young and successful American composer Nico Muhly (who has worked with artists such as Bonnie "Prince" Billy and Antony & the Johnsons). In only a few years Ane Brun has established herself as an international songwriter and liveartist. She has toured around the world, is about to release her fifth album and has achieved music awards and platinum records. And all of this through her own label DetErMine Records in Stockholm, Sweden. Ane Brun was in her mid twenties when she released her first album "Spending time with Morgan". It was made while finishing her University studies in Stockholm. Soon there was no more time for studies. It didn't take long before Ane and her small independent record label were licencing records all over the world. And soon she became a full-time touring- and recording artist. If someone had told her a few years ago that she was going to tour the world with her own music, she would laugh in your face and not even consider it a possibility. But still, two years after the debut, Ane Brun released her follow-up album "A Temporary Dive", co-produced by Katharina Nuttall. The album included songs such as "Balloon Ranger", "Rubber & Soul", "This Voice", "My Lover will go" and "To Let Myself Go". She also had the honour of recording duets with the acclaimed artists Ron Sexsmith and Teitur and soon released a collection of 10 songs called "Duets", "A Temporary Dive" was released all over Europe, in the US, Australia and Japan and the music journalists sang their praises: From Time Magazine - 1 of 5 Best Albums of May.By JOSH TYRANGIEL.

Her depressing songs are monumentally mordant (many are about breakups, one's about death), but she also flashes a sense of humor ("My friend, you left me in the end/ I can't believe I'm writing a song where friend rhymes with end") and really comes out of her shell on Song No. 6, a sweet, stomping duet with fellow melancholic Ron Sexsmith. Most compelling of all is her voice--a mix of Bjork's unpredictability and Joni Mitchell's directness that makes even the dourest material affecting."
