On October 7th, multi-platinum Arista recording artist Sarah McLachlan will release ‘Closer: The Best Of Sarah McLachlan’ – the first best-of collection of her long and illustrious career.
The album contains 14 classic tracks personally selected by McLachlan from her award-winning catalog, as well as two newly recorded and previously unreleased songs, “U Want Me 2” and “Don’t Give Up On Us,” working with her longtime producer Pierre Marchand.
Additionally, a deluxe 2-CD version will be available, which will include the 16 song album plus a bonus disc of additional songs from Sarah’s discography.
From a press release:
Since joining Arista two decades ago, every one of Sarah McLachlan’s studio and live albums and videos have been certified gold, platinum, or multi-platinum by the RIAA, 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 fifth album, the 8x-platinum ‘Surfacing’ (1997), contained two Grammy Award-winning tracks, as “Building a Mystery” won for Best Female Pop Vocal, and “Last Dance” was voted Best Pop Instrumental.
1999’s triple-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 double-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 Platinum, marking her 15th release to be certified gold, platinum, or multi-platinum by the RIAA.Note the date on this article may be incorrect due to importing it from our old system.
