Sarah McLachlan to Release New Album 'Shine On', 5/6; Performs on JAY LENO Tonight
Multi-platinum and Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter Sarah McLachlan has signed with Verve Records who will release her highly anticipated new album SHINE ON on May 6, 2014. Tune in tonight to NBC'sThe Tonight Show with Jay Lenoto hear McLachlan debut the new song "Beautiful Girl" from her forthcoming album.
The new album is McLachlan's first full-length recording of new material in four years and is currently being recorded in Montreal and Vancouver with Sarah's longtime collaborator/producer Pierre Marchand as well as additional tracks with Bob Rock and Vincent Jones.
"This album is about moving through the second half of my life in a more mindful and meaningful way, recognizing that every day, every moment is precious and though we all have our issues and problems, our damages, we all have the ability to continue to learn, grow from our experiences, thrive and shine on. Many of the songs are inspired at least partially or wholly by my father's passing three years ago and the profound effect losing him had on me. I had to find my footing again without the anchor of his unconditional love"
A special pre-order campaign for Sarah's new album SHINE ON is available now at SarahMclachlan.com.
"We're proud to welcome such an accomplished and beloved artist to Verve Records," said David Foster, Chairman of Verve Music Group. "Sarah's captivating voice and undeniable talent has established her as a celebrated global artist with an ability to reach fans on a deeply emotional level. We look forward to what the future brings with Sarah McLachlan as part of the Verve Records family. I've always been an enormous fan."
