On 25th of May Secret Garden is releasing “You Raise Me Up – The Collection”. It includes three previously-unheard songs including a piano-only version of “Song From A Secret Garden” performed by Rolf Løvland. It also contains a brand new version of “I’ve Dreamed Of You” – the song that Barbra Streisand chose to perform at her own wedding.
Secret Garden features Norwegian composer-keyboard artist Rolf Løvland and Irish violinist Fionnuala Sherry. The band first came to international prominence when they won the 1995 Eurovision Song Contest with the song ‘Nocturne’, which features on this collection.
The collection features previously unreleased material and brand new interpretations and is named after Secret Garden’s most celebrated song – “You Raise Me Up”, heard here for the very first time in its original 2001 version sung by celebrated Irish-Australian singer, Johnny Logan, the only act to have won Eurovision twice. Vocalists include Johnny Logan, Elaine Paige, Tracey Campbell and Capercaille’s Karen Matheson.
A new Secret Garden album is also in the works, and it will be released late 2018 – so 2018 is turning out to be a fantastic year for Secret Garden fans!
