Welcome Back, Friend! It’s been seven years. Seven years since Sarah McLachlan, the Grammy® award winning, multi-platinum singer/songwriter, has released an album. I have missed her amazing voice and her bittersweet lyrics of love and life.
Thanks to One2One Network, I have had the opportunity to review Sarah McLachlan’s new album, Laws of Illusion, set for release June 15!
I was expecting the haunting voice and lyrics of despair. Instead, her voice was stunning and the beat uplifting! Perhaps Ms. McLachlan’s divorce two years ago has given her some joy. Laws of Illusion sings of the beauty of a new romance and kick’s heartbreak to the door with lyrics like, “Heartbreak, no, you can’t catch me” from the song, “Heartbreak”. It’s refreshing and still it’s Sarah McLachlan!
The first song on the album is Loving You is Easy and it’s a catchy tune that sets the mood for the entire album and is truly one of the songs I would dare call a favorite.
Laws of Illusion is a comeback for McLachlan and her longtime producer, Pierre Marchand. It’s the perfect partnership, McLachlan’s voice and Marchand’s interpretation of music through instruments. It leaves you FEELING the music rather than hearing it.
With more than two decades in the music business, EVERY one of McLachlan’s albums has reached gold, platinum, or multi-platinum by RIAA. There’s a reason McLachlan has sold over 20 million albums!
Laws of Illusion Tracklisting:
2. ILLUSIONS 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
