Whatever Happened to Enya?

29 Dec 2012 at 12:44

She’s sold 80 million albums worldwide, is one of Ireland’s leading exports and a massive talent, yet Enya hasn’t released a new album since Amarantine back in 2005. A new album was rumoured in 2011 but nothing has happened. I have every song she has ever released and would love to know why seven years have passed since her last album and whether anything new is on the horizon. Enya is one of those artists some people love to hate. I’ve never understood why. She’s accused of recycling the same song over and over again by people who ought to know better. It’s presumably because she has a very distinctive sound – but so do most successful recording artists. You know a Dire Straits track when you hear one, but they were never accused of rehashing a single song.

So come on Enya, let’s have a new album please. Soon!
