I’ve been a fan of Sarah McLachlan ever since I heard her haunting voice coming from my housemate’s room as a grad student in Boston. I’ve watched her swing and sing during a performance at the historic all-female Lilith Fair with my best girl friends, sung to Sweet Surrender and Building a Mystery at the top of my lungs in my car more times than I can count, and played Ice Cream at our wedding.
Sarah McLachlan’s music has been part of my life for a long time and I’ve anxiously awaited her newest release, Laws of Illusion, available June 15. Though it has been 7 years since her last album, Laws of Illusion brings back the Sarah I remember- a brilliant lyricist who makes gorgeous music that I never tire of listening to thanks the perfect combination of melodic ballads a la Jewel and rockin’ tunes akin to Sheryl Crow and the Indigo Girls.
Thanks to One2One Network, I was able to get a sneak peek of 4 tracks from Laws of Illusion. The 4 songs I previewed- Foregiveness, Heartbreak, Illusions of Bliss, and Loving You is Easy– will draw in new fans and please the existing ones who have been waiting for new music and who look forward to seeing her at Lilith Fair.
