Good news everyone! Here’s another way to spend your Christmas money in case you still have some left. After releasing Watermark, Shepherd Moons and The Memory of Trees on vinyl last autumn, Warner Music continues in their noble effort to expand the list of Enya’s records available on LP. The Celts vinyl reissue is currently announced for 14 March 2017 and available for pre-order from Amazon, Music Direct and Elusive Discs. Keeping in mind that the release was postponed once already, we will have to wait and see if the new date is respected.
Concerning the And Winter Came vinyl edition, originally announced for Christmas 2016, the news is less optimistic: according to its Amazon page the album is scheduled for 30 December 2017. Let’s hope it comes out before then, but Warner might opt for a winter release given the album’s strong seasonal theme.
As for the long-anticipated Dark Sky Island music book, the wait is finally over (if you’re fast enough). After many months of postponing, Hal Leonard finally published the music book for Enya’s latest album mid-January. However, the first printing is almost sold out already due to strong demand. If you don’t want to wait until 2 March 2017 for the second printing, you might try to grab some of the copies still available at Booko or Amazon MarketPlace.
All the best wishes for 2017!
