Did you miss hearing Enya’s golden voice? Have you missed her beautiful, relaxing music? I know many of you are nodding and answering yes. Well, she is back with her eighth studio album called “Dark Sky Island”. She’s back after an 8-year absence with her distinctive style of music and with her recognizable voice. Soon as you hear this new song, you won’t even need to be told it’s Enya.
Enya has been making music since 1980 and in those 35 years she has without a doubt left a big mark on the world of music. But what endears her to fans is how loyal she’s remained to the sound that she introduced herself to us with. That traditional Celtic sound is something you don’t hear too much of these days, but Enya makes it feel contemporary and essential when she incorporates it in her songs.
She has been recording Dark Sky Island from 2012, performing all instruments and vocals on the album. The team that worked with her on the new project is almost entirely the same as on previous albums from lyricist Roma Ryan to producer Nicky Ryan.
Today, I will share with you the first single from this album, ‘Echoes In The Rain’.
