If there's one thing better than a new Ane Brun album, it's two new Ane Brun albums. Together, After the Great Storm and How Beauty Holds The Hand of Sorrow add up to the Norwegian singer-songwriter's best work yet – and I do not say that lightly. For this interview, I took my dog out on a day trip from Stockholm to catch up with Ane in her lovely hilltop cottage. This is the first music feature I have written since shuttering Wears The Trousers in 2013 and I am very much out of practice. Hope you enjoy it anyway, over on The Line of Best Fit.
"When you feel grief, you see what is precious. You see the beauty of what’s leaving or has gone. You see the beauty of freedom, of human creativity, and the feeling of community. When you don’t have these things you miss them. And I have to wonder: Are we really going to ruin this? Are we really going to destroy this place, this planet?" – A.B.
