he met her in the morning sun he squinted his eyes ’cause the backlight was strong this is what she does, you know she blinds us, to hide her brilliance she’s standing with her back towards the sun minding her state of oblivion this is what she does, you know, she blinds us to save her intemperate heart he met her in the morning sun and she remembers every fibre in the air it felt like forever touched with universal beauty and all she wanted was to disappear he could never leave her to be gone he told her ”Please just lie down, and let my light run through you as easily as sound waves from a song” he met her in the morning sun he laid there with her until the afternoon it’s funny how things go, she said I blind you, and you lead my way instead he met her in the morning sun

I see only bright open fields behind you the sunlight shimmers off the crown of your head you look at me with a soft face and I throw myself into the open air every particle will catch me there like in a dream I trust in this in you in yes and I can sense your hand in mine intertwined I remember you holding on it runs right through aaah I trust in this in you in yes I trust in yes

there you walk next to me and I own it no one else will ever own this it’s you and me and they told me this is how it could be I thought I’d be so lost I thought that you’d be gone for me I thought I’d lose my way to you it’s you and me

don’t run and hide take a peek outside I’m here for you don’t run and hide take a look outside I’m here for you I hear you roaming in the night you can’t let go you are caught behind a wall of noise you used to smile but now it’s hurting feels like icicles on your chin don’t you know all the times we’ve talked about this now we’ve talked about it over and over and over and over don’t run and hide take a peek outside I’m here for you don’t run and hide take a look outside I’m here for you fear is a choice a lonely exile it’s a cloud dimming the landing lights when you find yourself between reality and dreams accept and breathe over and over and over and over let it go let it go and I’ll catch you it is time now don’t hide now I’m here for you

about

HOW BEAUTY HOLDS THE HAND OF SORROW’s finds Brun returning to her early work’s intimate poignancy, its nine tracks opening with the piano-led ‘Last Breath’ and concluding with a piano-only interpretation of After The Great Storm’s ‘Don’t Run And Hide’, while ‘Lose My Way’ finds her joined by Oscar-nominated, Emmy Award-winning composer Dustin O’Halloran (also of A Winged Victory For The Sullen) and ‘Closer’ occupies territory somewhere between Joni Mitchell and Kate Bush. She picks up her acoustic guitar for ‘Meet You At The Delta’ and ‘Breaking The Surface’, and ‘Song For Thrill And Tom’’s luminous buoyancy is meanwhile boosted by angelic backing vocals from Jennie Abrahamson, Linnea Olsson, Therese Börjesson and Carolina Wallin Perez. Nestling at the album’s heart, furthermore, lies the simply magical ‘Trust’.

“Both albums deal with the bigger questions in life,” says Brun, “but in 2020 these questions have become even bigger. Even though I wrote most of them before this whole pandemic started, I feel they all have a message that fits the situation we’re in…”

HOW BEAUTY HOLDS THE HAND OF SORROW is Brun’s ninth album, mostly written in the Norwegian mountains during summer 2019. It was largely recorded at Stockholm’s Atlantis Studios and Studio Bruket, home to Tonbruket and the studio where musician and co-producer Martin Hederos – who also co-wrote a number of songs – and Studio Bruket’s own house sound technician Anton Sundell reside. The album was produced by Brun, Hederos and Sundell.
