new sarah mclachlan

I heard the new Sarah McLachlan song "Fallen" tonight for the first time, and it made me deeply happy. There's something about her music that fits into my psyche in just the right way, part religious experience and part guilty pleasure, heh! So apparently we can expect the entire new album (Afterglow) on November 4th, and a substantial tour schedule in 2004.

Here's a funny thing: Electronic Arts is promoting the song, making a stream available on The Sims site. They are also promising a Sarah skin for the Superstar version of the game. What's up with such cognitive dissonance? Is that cool, or just silly?

Angela's really lovely site is a much better bet for fans, and includes this link you will definitely want to click on.

We all begin with good intent
Love was raw and young
We believe that we could change ourselves
The past can be undone
But we carry on our back the burden
Time always reveals
In the lonely light of morning
In the wound that would not heal
It's the bitter taste of losing everything
That I've held so dear
I've fallen.

I am constantly amazed at the power of music to elicit such physical and emotional resonances...
