Lisa Gerrard – ‘Abwoon’
RELEASE DATE: 8th December 2003
Abwoon is the first single from the forthcoming Lisa Gerrard and Patrick Cassidy album, Immortal Memory, set for release worldwide via 4AD on January 20th.
Read On… Abwoon features the breathtaking title track, as well as the previously-unreleased album cut, “Maranatha (Come Lord)”. One of the world’s most enigmatic and acclaimed vocalists, Lisa Gerrard (one half of the dearly-departed Dead Can Dance) has become the toast of Hollywood, responsible for best-selling soundtracks such as Baraka, Heat, Ali, The Insider, Gladiator, and Whale Rider.
Lisa was awarded a Golden Globe and nominated for an Oscar for her work on the Gladiator soundtrack. The award-winning Whale Rider movie became the sleeper hit of this past year, with Lisa winning widespread critical acclaim for her soundtrack work. The recently released Whale Rider DVD features a showcase of her soundtrack, complete with selections from the score, and commentary from Lisa herself.
Lisa Gerrard has an amazing sales history scanning over 100K with her solo albums, over 650K with her soundtrack work, and over 1.5 million with Dead Can Dance in North America alone! Lisa recently performed a low-key show as part of the Morning Star Concert for West Papua at the Melbourne Concert Hall.
