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.

Have a listen to the track ‘Mørketid’ (‘Winter Darkness’) from our new album! The line “to overcome the darkness” took on a double meaning this year ♥️

The whole Sacred Night release is a masterpiece. I’ve even been inspired to learn Norwegian!😀. Cathrine Iversen’s voice is incredible and all who are involved in making this wonderful piece of work should be commended.

💖 these songs and music. Especially the violin 🎻

Why no English lyrics available on the CD sleeve, not even the song titles ?

This is so lovely, gentle and peaceful. Thank you

Secret Garden never disappoints❤🎶🎶🎶🎶

Música belíssima

I got my CD in the mail yesterday and have listened to it twice today. Once wasn’t enough! I don’t have to understand Norwegian to hear the beauty in the songs. This album is for Christmas and always. Thank you, Cathrine, Rolf and Fionnuala for another Secret Garden treasure ❤️

How do we get the CD in Russia, Moscow? We love your music very much! Its wonderful! We would like to receive such a gift for the new year!

It will be another timeless classic from you guys.


This album is very nice and meaningful. I really admire you because all of your albums has made me a lot of emotion in this social life. Hope you will continue to release the next album 😊😊😊

Only been a recent fan but absolutely delighted and grateful! The music has been helpful and beautiful, and what a wonderful birthday gift this is to me 😍🎶💙

Congratulations! I love all your songs and I know to play the piano and violin your magical "Song from a secret garden" ❤

Best Wishes of #Diwali may this day sparkle 🌟⭐✨ the path of your Musical🎶🎶 Journey with Happiness & Blessings ,😍🙏🙏🙏🌟🌟#Secret #Garden

Stunning album from Secret Garden 🌳arriving just in time for Christmas 🎄#scarednight🌑⭐️🌟

How do we get the CD in the UK? 20 quid from Amazon UK is quite pricey for a 7 track album. Also doesn't look like it's out until Dec 4th here 😨

I can't see the video on YouTube. It's blocked in America?



I hope you come to Australia soon

Ruben Koman ❤😘

Edit: I found it now

No regular YouTube yet? Hope it's uploaded there soon too! 🙂

Bought on apple store 😍
