Global sensation Celtic Woman has just dropped Ancient Land Deluxe. This is timely, considering that the album proved to be triumphant upon its release, followed by a smashing 2019 tour. This will an amazing surprise for Celtic Woman collectors due to the extra tracks. There are 11 tracks that you’ve never heard before on the digital version of the album. There are 2 from Ancient Land CD, 5 from Ancient Land DVD and 4 four from the current album tour. This digital-only album bolted out of the gates last September 6!
All in all, you will be hearing 27 songs. That’s a total of 1 hour and 39 minutes. This is great for a long train ride or flight. I don’t mind taking this out on a slow bike ride. The songs are all feel-good and divinely orchestrated. I mean think about it. It was recorded in Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios in the UK, the summer of 2018. The sonics are superb and this is a splendid album, production-wise(even if you are not into Celtic Music). It was followed by a live concert filmed against the backdrop of the historic Johnstown Castle in County Wexford, Ireland.
My personal favorite is Mná na hÉireann (Women of Ireland). It is a perfect sofa/lounge/chill-out music over a cup of tea and a good book. Don’t miss the jaunty Ballroom of Romance and its accompanying music video. Celtic Woman is both a Celtic music and Pop phenomenon.
