Norwegian singer-songwriter Ane Brun has announced that she is following up her tenth anniversary celebrating compilation ‘Songs 2003-2013’, which was released in June, with a new rarities collection. Handily, it is simply titled ‘Rarities’. And the new record is available with immediate effect via Brun’s own Balloon Ranger label.

Telling CMU that she chose to spring this release so suddenly because she “wanted it to be a surprise for the fans”, she said that the idea for it came while putting together the aforementioned career retrospective release.

“When we planned the ‘Songs 2003-2013’ retrospective album we realised that we actually had a lot of good unreleased stuff in our archive”, she explained. “Enough to make a great double album – the kind of album that fans love. It made sense to release it this year when I celebrate ten years as a recording artist. We decided to put everything we liked on the album, so it ended up with 20 tracks”.

You can see the full tracklist for the release, a mixture of original songs, alternate versions and covers, below. And you can catch Ane live in the UK in November. Meanwhile, she tells us that she will begin work on her next album in the new year, with a tentative release “probably early [in] 2015”.

So, that’s something to look forward to. And before you get to that tracklist, have a listen to one of the covers from the record, Ane Brun’s take on Beyonce’s ‘Halo’, featuring approved cellist Linnea Olsson.
