I’m such a huge Sarah McLachlan fan. I remember when I bought Sarah’s “Surfacing” CD when it first came out more than ten years ago. Oh, how I love every single track in that CD! I could listen to those songs everyday and I’ll never get tired of them.
The Grammy® award winning, multi-platinum singer/songwriter just released her long awaited new album, “LAWS OF ILLUSION” yesterday, June 15th!
True to her Canadian roots, “Laws of Illusion” was recorded in Montreal and Vancouver with Sarah’s longtime collaborator/producer Pierre Marchand. This album was released June 15th just weeks in advance of the kick off to Lilith Fair 2010– the historic all women touring festival founded by McLachlan. (See more info on Lilith Fair below).
The album’s first single, “Loving You is Easy” is one of my personal favorites and it’s no surprise why it’s now on the Top Ten hits at Adult Alternative radio! I love this song. Smooth, sentimental and romantic. It’s a true Sarah McLachlan piece… a work of art!
“LAWS OF ILLUSION” Tracklisting:
2. Illusion Of Bliss
3. Loving You Is Easy
6. Rivers Of Love
7. Love Come
8. Out Of Tune
10. Don’t Give Up On Us
11. U Want Me 2
12. Bring On The Wonder
13. Love Come (Piano Version)
Check out Sarah performing a medley of her hits on Dancing With The Stars– it’s a MUST-SEE!
About the Lilith Fair Summer Tour:
From 1997 through 1999, Lilith Fair was one of the highest grossing touring festivals in the world, with over 2 million fans in attendance and raising over $10 million dollars for national and local women’s charities. This summer, this historic all-female music festival is returning with a big bang!
Check out the lineup of artists joining Sarah on the bill: Colbie Caillat, Mary J. Blige, Sheryl Crow, Erykah Badu, Ke$ha, Norah Jones, Sugarland, Heart, Miranda Lambert, Beth Orton, Brandi Carlile, Cat Power, Chantel Kreviazuk, Corinne Bailey Rae, Emmylou Harris, Gossip, Indigo Girls, Ingrid Michaelson, Jill Scott, Loretta Lynn, Metric, Sara Bareilles, Tegan and Sara and more! Sounds exciting, isn’t it? If I get lucky, I could convince one of my girlfriends to come with me and see the one in Washington DC on August 3rd.
