first_imgDONEGAL singer Enya has been back in the studio and has released a single off her first album in seven years.The Gaoth Dobhair woman’s astonishing music is already being hailed by fans who have viewed it more than 150,000 times on YouTube alone since it was released just yesterday. The single – on the video above – is entitled Echoes In Rain….and the video is reminiscent of a wet day in Glenveagh! The album, released next month, is called Dark Sky Island.Enya has enjoyed almost 75 million album sales to date, in addition to four Grammy Awards, six World Music Awards, an Ivor Novello, a Golden Globe nomination and an Oscar nomination in 2002 for the song May It Be from Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring.Her new album sees her team up again with long-time collaborators, producer Nicky Ryan and lyricist Roma Ryan – the husband and wife team who worked with Enya since her breakout hit Orinoco Flow in 1988.Enya says she was inspired for this album by Roma’s work on a series of poetry books themed around islands, specifically a decision by the the island of Sark in the Channel islands to be designated as a dark sky island. Speaking about the Dark Sky Island, Enya said: “This album has a theme of journeys. Journeys to the island; through the length of a lifetime; through history, through emotions; and journeys across great oceans.“So although it’s not a ‘themed’ album, as such, we nevertheless have an underlying connection between songs.”Dark Sky Island will be released on November 20, she said.DDTV: 150,000 PEOPLE LISTEN TO ENYA’S NEW SINGLE IN JUST 24 HOURS! was last modified: October 9th, 2015 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalEnyaGaoth Dobhairlast_img
