The 405 last spoke to Ane Brun two years ago, around the release of her decade-spanning collection, Songs: 2003-2013. Discussing the advantages of setting up her own label, Brun then told us: "It's good to not have to ask someone if it fits the budget or timing to release or plan anything. This kind of spontaneous way of working has sometimes had the most incredible timing."

Well, we can report that this kind of spontaneous way of working has also meant that the 18 months or so which Brun took to work on her new record, When I'm Free, certainly paid off. The album boasts a slick, eclectic and fairly immediate selection of tracks, that enhance the Norwegian's repertoire and help in corroborating the suggestion that she is one of the most interesting songwriter currently putting out music.

In our latest instalment of Fourcast, Brun talks about finding a new sound on When I'm Free, performing it live and 'Hanging', The 405's favourite song from the album.
