Inspired by hearing from that other Norwegian Annie, we poked around to see what Ane Brunvoli was up to to find she’s completed work on the follow up to 2005’s double dip of A Temporary Dive and Duets. She’s even started releasing singles! You Norwegian Ans really should keep in better touch. “Baby we were made of gold” is the operative phrase in Ms. Brun’s “The Treehouse Song,” a dark then wistful tune with a subdued old-school country vibe on the hook. Director Magnus Renfors takes the camera through increasingly absurd portraits of people and animals, and baby they are made of gold — as in camera filter, sparkly settings, even massive embedded (literally) hearts. Hey Ane, you still be the type of girl to take it seriously.
You can hear the album’s first, Newsom-y single “The Puzzle” along with the rest of the record streaming over at MySpace. The LP’s called Changing Of The Seasons and it’s out soon via her own Balloon Ranger label. She’s taking international preorders right here.
