Sarah McLachlan’s new album, Laws Of Illusion, debuts today with 22,000 units sold, placing the album at No. 2 on the Nielsen Soundscan Top Albums chart behind Drake’s debut album, which is now the highest-selling album of 2010 in Canada. Sarah’s strong showing makes Laws Of Illusion the fourth highest debut of 2010, next to Drake, Jack Johnson and Justin Bieber.
Though Laws Of Illusion is officially out in the world, things are just ramping up for Sarah. Her debut single “Loving You Is Easy” is climbing the AC chart at No.7 this week, with a new Dave Aude mix of the track on its way to Hot AC. The video for the track is already in medium rotation at both MuchMore and MusiMax, where it entered their chart at No.14. Check out the video HERE. "Forgiveness," a ballad from Laws Of Illusion in classic Sarah style, is already a fan-favorite, debuting on the Hot Digital Tracks chart this week at No.55. Watch an acoustic performance of "Forgiveness" HERE.
To top it all off, after an 11-year hiatus, the 2010 Lilith Tour returns this Sunday, June 27 in Calgary for a six-week tour, featuring Sarah as the headliner on every date. With CTV as the official and exclusive Canadian media partner for the Lilith Tour, Sarah and other Lilith artists will be heavily featured over the coming weeks on CTV’s etalk, which will be bringing viewers exclusive content and interviews from Lilith (www.lilith.ctv.ca).
