Enya announces new album
Singer Enya has announced her first music album in over 7 years, titled Dark Sky Island.
Enya, whose last album was 2008’s And Winter Came…, has set the 20th of November as the release date for the new album.
Enya is a 4-time Grammy award winner, and has sold over 75 million copies of her album over the years.
A press release about the album reads:
“Sonically, Dark Sky Island is a collection that’s both incredibly diverse and innately unified by the production: almost Spector-esque in its lavish, wide-screen multi-tracked layers of sound.”
“Opening track The Humming is an immediate highlight as it subliminally works its infectious magic within the course of a single listen. By contrast, Even In The Shadows pulses with an insistent rhythm; the hymnal I Could Never Say Goodbye is sparse in its reflective beauty; while Sancta Maria blends synthesisers and classical instrumentation to create an ethereal soundscape that comfortably sits in both the past and the future. It’s almost a history of sound encapsulated in four hypnotic and otherworldly minutes.”
