Multi-platinum and Grammy-Award winning singer/songwriter Sarah McLachlan will release her first studio album of new material in 7 years LAWS OF ILLUSION on June 15th on Nettwerk/Sony Records. The album was recorded in Montreal and Vancouver with Sarah’s longtime collaborator/producer Pierre Marchand. Sarah McLachlan’s new album LAWS OF ILLUSION will be released just weeks in advance of the kick off to Lilith Fair 2010, the historic all women touring festival, founded by McLachlan, which became one of the highest grossing touring festivals in the world. Between 1997 and 1999, Lilith Fair enjoyed over 2 million fans in attendance and over $10 million dollars raised for national and local women’s charities. Lilith Fair 2010 features performances by Mary J. Blige, Sheryl Crow, Kelly Clarkson, Erykah Badu, Sugarland, Heart, Norah Jones, Ke$ha, Corinne Bailey Rae, Loretta Lynn, Emmylou Harris, Tegan and Sara, and many more! Since joining Nettwerk over two decades ago in 1988, every one of Sarah McLachlan’s studio and live albums has been certified Gold, Platinum, or Multi-Platinum starting with Touch (1988) and Solace (1991), both Gold sellers. Her 1994 breakthrough, Fumbling Towards Ecstasy (Triple-Platinum) was followed by the digitally enhanced multimedia version of The Freedom Sessions (1995, Gold). Sarah’s landmark fourth album, the Diamond (1 million+) Surfacing (1997), contained two Grammy Award-winning tracks: “Building a Mystery” won for Best Female Pop Vocal, and “Last Dance” was voted Best Pop Instrumental. 1999’s quadruple- Platinum Mirrorball, and its platinum long-form video counterpart, were both culled from that year’s Lilith Fair tour, and spun off Sarah’s third Grammy-winning performance, as “I Will Remember You” won for Best Female Pop Vocal. The five-times-Platinum Afterglow followed in 2003, and received a Grammy nomination for Best Pop Vocal Album, while its opening track, “Fallen” was nominated for Best Female Pop Vocal. 2007’s Wintersong, was the #1 best seller on the Holiday Album charts that year; was nominated for a Grammy for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album; and was certified Triple-Platinum, marking her 15th release to be certified. Sarah’s most recent release Closer: The Best Of Sarah McLachlan (2008) contained 14 classic tracks from McLachlan’s award-winning catalog, as well as two newly recorded songs.
