Illustration: tears of disappointed Enya fans
Many of us were hoping to get a new release from Enya this year but at the moment there is no official information about her next album. Two years ago, the Enya team confirmed they were working with a choir and an orchestra at the Abbey Road studios. Since then there has been no communication.
The long silence led to speculations about Enya having dicarded the ‘Abbey Road’ material to rerecord it alone. She is a known perfectionist to say the least, so I can see where this is coming from. However, I hope it’s just fans’ imagination running wild. Another speculation suggested that the delay might have been caused by Enya preparing a live event to accompany the album. Taking the music to stage has been mentioned in one form or another since the very beginning of her career and never realised so far. Now, this sounds nicer straight away!
We have no way of knowing what’s causing the unusually long wait (even for Enya!) until the album comes out and she says more about it. So keep calm and listen to something else.*
*It has been suggested that ‘If I Could Be Where You Are‘ has some appropriate lines for times like these. Or maybe even ‘Amarantine.’ Thinking about it, Enya has a surprising number of songs talking about people crying.
