Celtic and world music tinged songstress Loreena McKennitt releases her first original song in 11 years and it’s like she’s never been away. “Breaking the Sword” is a piano and and ambient string based ballad sung from a mothers perspective of losing a son to war. It’s a track to commemorate Remembrance Day with proceeds from Canadian digital sales going towards the Canadian Armed Forces Support Our Troops fund. It really does whet my appetite for a new album from her though – she’s become Kate Bush like!
