Lisa Gerrard has updated her website with track-by-track samples of her new album “The Black Opal”. The track samples can be found here. The album appears to be based around the plight of dolphins and the albums cover art is as spooky as it is sad.
For the samples themselves, this is looking like a fantastic album! Each track appears to have a tune again and it seems much less ambience and much more heart and soul. The final track appears to be Hymn of the Fallen from the live cd’s too. Currently the album is on track for late September or early October but listen, enjoy and it looks like Lisa is very much back at the top of her (human) game again!
