Norwegian singer-songwriter Ane Brun just debuted her new music video for the song “Trust.” The track will appear on her forthcoming album that’s due out this fall. 

Prior to the song’s release, she invited her followers on Instagram to a pre-listening party online. She opened up a video chatroom and called it “Trust.” During several hour-long sessions, she met up with a total of about 100 people from all around the world, including places like Indonesia, Lombardia (Italy), New York, Brazil, Turkey and many more.

Some people were in quarantine because they were infected with the coronavirus or because they work in healthcare. A few were stuck abroad, far away from family and friends. The video features clips from these sessions.

“What we had in common was that we were all affected by this difficult situation, and most of us were isolating from the outside world,” Brun says in a press release about the video. “We also felt a need to trust and meet other people. It was magical to come together like this.”

Brun recorded and edited the video entirely herself. 

“It’s a song about letting go of all doubt and just letting yourself fall into the hands of fate and trust that it’s all going to be alright,” she says. “It was first written as a romantic song, but as we’re in this state of uncertainty around the planet, I feel it has gained more meaning.”

To date, Brun has released 12 studio albums over the last 15 years. Her last effort, 2017’s Leave Me Breathless, featured a collection of covers. It included reinterpreted versions of hits from Radiohead, Joni Mitchell, Nick Cave, Bob Dylan and others.
