I found out the other day that Sarah McLachlan’s latest single, U Want Me 2, comes out tomorrow on iTunes. Finally! I’ve been dying for her to come out with something new. You can listen to it here. She has released so many “Best Of” and “Greatest Hits” albums, which I love, but I’m starved for something new. Her last completely original album was ‘Afterglow’ in 2003 which is incredible. She released a Christmas album titled ‘Wintersong’ in 2006 containing my most favorite version of Silent Night. In April of this year, she released ‘Rarities, B Sides 2, and Other Stuff Volume 2′. This album is filled with duets, soundtrack contributions, and live performances.
Her newest album, ‘Closer’, is due out October 7 and contains more greatest hits. Luckily, she has included two new tracks. Hooray! She blames her absence from the music scene on the fact that she had her second daughter, Taja (her older daughter is India) and is engrossed in being a mom. Whatever. I guess that’s okay. She’ll just need to make it up to me by touring soon. I’ll be there fo sho!
