After 75 million sales, four Grammy Awards, six World Music Awards, an IvorNovello, an Oscar nomination, a Golden Globe nomination, and seven studio albums, Enya will be releasing her brand new album, Dark Sky Island, on November 20th.
The Enya “creative triumvirate,” comprised of Enya, producer/sound engineer Nicky Ryan, and lyricist RomaRyan, began working on the album in the spring of 2012. The album’s title track, “Dark Sky Island,” inspired by Roma’s work on a series of poetry books themed around islands, was the first track to be written for the album.
You can stream “Echoes In Rain” below.
“This album has a theme of journeys,” states Enya. “Journeys to the island; through the length of a lifetime; through history, through emotions; and journeys across great oceans. So although it’s not a ‘themed’ album, as such, we nevertheless have an underlying connection between songs.”
Dark Sky Island will be available to pre-order on CD physically and digitally on October 9, with “Echoes in Rain” provided as an instant grat track for fans.
