Secret Garden’s 10th Original Album “STORYTELLER” – Release April 26th

“Storyteller” is the tenth original album from the award-winning Norwegian-Irish act Secret Garden. Here, long-time musical partners Rolf Lovland and Fionnuala Sherry include three brand new songs with three distinct vocalists – ”Strength” (featuring Espen Grjotheim), ”Beautiful” (Brian Kennedy) and ”Sunshine” (Cathrine Iversen) sit alongside and complement the undeniably unique instrumental universe that has been charming global audiences for over 20 years, and earned the act 113 Platinum awards from multiple countries around the world.

Special for this new album is also the presentation of four melodies from Lovland’s first-ever musical-in-making, ”The Pilot”. ”Parallel to this album,” says the Norwegian composer, “I’ve composed music for a new musical. It’s a musical based on playwright Henrik Ibsen’s story ”Terje Vigen” from 1861, and though it will not premiere before 2021, we decided to use some previews of the music for this album, as it’s all a natural part of the writing process”.

Differing from the duo’s last studio album ”Just The Two Of Us”, “Storyteller” is a full-scale production with band, top-line instrumentalists from Norway and Ireland, and the world-renowned Czech National Symphony Orchestra, recorded in Prague. ”As always, we wanted the production to reflect the dual nationality of Secret Garden by merging Norwegian and Irish players,” says violinist Fionnuala Sherry. “Sessions in Norway and in Ireland, as well as London and Prague, create a great palette of musical colours in our own Secret Garden blend.”

Secret Garden remains one of the world’s most successful instrumental acts, with total sales of over five million albums to date. Career musical highlights include the Eurovision Song Contest-winning song ”Nocturne” (1995), the Barbra Streisand wedding song ”I’ve Dreamed of You” (1998), and the globally-admired ”You Raise Me Up” – the most covered song of the 21st century, now recorded by more than 1,000 artists, and in countless languages.

”Storyteller” will be released globally through Universal Music Norway/Global Classics and Jazz on 26th April 2019.

Nocturne has new platform!
2020 is the 25th anniversary of Secret Gardens Eurovision win with Nocturne in 1995.
The host of that Eurovision was the wonderful Irish TV presenter Mary Kennedy. Mary is competing in Irelands Dancing with the Stars and she choose Nocturne to perform her dance routine last night in Dublin.
With her dancing partner and choreographer John Nolan they performed a stunning waltz.
It was great fun and an honour to be invited with hubby as Mary and John’s guests to see this amazing and emotional performance.
A lovely start to the year for us and a welcome relief from the daily routine of dealing with breast cancer treatment.

Hopefully it won’t be so long now before I can start performing it again.!!
