Sarah Mclachlan signs with Verve Records

McLachlan debuts new song Beautiful Girl Jan. 30 on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

30 JANUARY 2014 (Toronto, ON) - Multi-platinum-selling, JUNO and Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter Sarah McLachlan has signed with Verve Records, who will release her highly anticipated new album, SHINE ON, May 6, 2014.   Tune in tonight to The Tonight Show with Jay Leno to hear McLachlan debut the new song "Beautiful Girl" from her forthcoming album.SHINE ON is McLachlan's first full-length recording of new material in four years and is currently being recorded in Montreal and Vancouver with Sarah’s longtime collaborator/producer Pierre Marchand as well as additional tracks with Bob Rock and Vincent Jones. A special pre-order campaign is available now at SarahMclachlan.com.

"This album is about moving through the second half of my life in a more mindful and meaningful way, recognizing that every day, every moment is precious and though we all have our issues and problems, our damages, we all have the ability to continue to learn, grow from our experiences, thrive and shine on. Many of the songs are inspired at least partially or wholly by my father’s passing three years ago and the profound effect losing him had on me. I had to find my footing again without the anchor of his unconditional love"

“We’re proud to welcome such an accomplished and beloved artist to Verve Records,” said David Foster, Chairman of Verve Music Group. “Sarah’s captivating voice and undeniable talent has established her as a celebrated global artist with an ability to reach fans on a deeply emotional level.  We look forward to what the future brings with Sarah McLachlan as part of the Verve Records family. I've always been an enormous fan.”

"Sarah McLachlan is a Canadian treasure whose music and activism are celebrated globally.  Sarah's selfless investment in those in need is exhibited through her beautiful songwriting and adored by millions worldwide.  It's a privilege to partner with the entire Verve team, and we are charmed that Sarah now calls Verve and Universal her label home," said Randy Lennox, President and CEO, Universal Music Canada.

Sarah McLachlan is one of the most celebrated singer songwriters in entertainment with over 40 million albums sold worldwide. She is an eight-time Juno Award winner and a three-time Grammy Award winner. McLachlan’s landmark fifth album, the 10x-platinum SURFACING, contained two Grammy Award-winning tracks: “Building a Mystery” and “Last Dance”.  In addition to her personal artistic efforts, she founded the Lilith Fair tour showcasing female musicians which raised over $7 million for local and national charities over its 3 years and in 2002 founded her non-profit organization the Sarah McLachlan School of Music. The school provides free afterschool music education for at-risk and underserved kids who otherwise would have no access to music programming.
