DEAD CAN DANCE singer LISA GERRARD has released a new album 'Immortal Memory', her first for five years. The album is a collaboration with the award-winning Irish composer Patrick Cassidy, whom she met in Los Angeles while working on the soundtrack for 'Gladiator'.
After much deliberation Cassidy decided to join Gerrard in her Australian studio and together they worked on the extraordinary pieces of music that fill Immortal Memory.
Having reaped the benefits of their differing approaches to writing, Gerrard and Cassidy have produced one of the most astonishing albums of 2004. The album leads the listener on a magical journey, which encompasses majestic sweeps of sound that wrap themselves around the phenomenal voice of Gerrard. Startlingly Gerrard sings in Gaelic and Aramaic, an interesting quirk that gives the whole experience an otherworldly quality.
