Sarah McLachlan's Long-Awaited Return

New single "Loving You Is Easy" from the ever-elegant Sarah McLachlan, is a surprising departure from the singer/songwriter's traditionally ethereal, dreamy sonic signature; amping up the tempo and featuring a near-confrontation with the mic. Still lovely, but bolder and brassy, as she professes a passionate love affair: "Loving you is easy, loving you is wondrous and pure/I shout it from the rooftops/Cause I’m alive I’m on fire, shine like a star burst into the sky."

From McLachlan's first studio album of new material in seven long years, "Laws Of Illusion," is due June 15, on Arista Records.
