“Closer is song about the never-ending topic of how hardship makes you stronger, or brings you closer to something more true to yourself. My experience is that the expression ”if it doesn’t kill you it makes you stronger” is quite realistic, but I’m certain that there are exceptions to that rule. And if it doesn’t make you stronger, at least it can widen your perspectives.”
Ane Brun

Following great reviews this month from her first 2020 album release titled, After The Great Storm, Closer brings a piano ballad written in a cabin deep in the Norwegian mountains, where Brun revelled in a three-week burst of creativity which gave birth to almost all of the two albums’ songs. How Beauty Holds The Hand Of Sorrow can be pre-ordered now at After The Great Storm is available to purchase now at
