Enya to release ‘Amarantine’

Enya is to release her sixth album on 21 Nov. The LP, entitled ‘Amarantine’, will be followed by a single bearing the same name on 5 Dec. As you may know, Enya has in the past sung words written by her lyricist Roma Ryan in Gaelic, Welsh, Latin and Spanish, as well as English. On the new album, there’s a song with Japanese lyrics, as well as three songs written in a made-up language, Loxian. Lyricist Ryan was apparantly inspired to create the custom language after writing lyrics in Tolkien’s fabricated tongue, Elvish, when Enya was invited to sing the theme song for ‘The Lord Of The Rings – The Fellowship Of The Ring’ soundtrack, at the request of director Peter Jackson.
