Released on 12 March 2008 in Norway and Sweden, ‘Changing of the Seasons’ is the fourth studio album by Norwegian and Sami singer-songwriter Ane Brun. The album became her breakthrough record outside of Scandinavia (it was released on 14 October 2008 in the US, and on 2 February 2009 in the UK) when the bonus track “True Colors” (a cover of the 1985 Cyndi Lauper song) was used in a television ad for Sky+ HD in the UK and Ireland. The other bonus track is a cover of Alphaville’s 1984 hit single “Big in Japan”, recorded as part of the soundtrack for the Swedish TV documentary programme ‘Stor i Japan’. The French release of the album (12 October 2009) contained a third bonus track, a version in French of “Koop Island Blues”, a song Brun originally recorded in 2006 with Swedish jazz group Koop.
