McLachlan, Bryan Adams record duet
A recently recorded duet between Bryan Adams and Sarah McLachlan will likely have the unique distinction of being the latter’s last recorded work before becoming a mom.
Adams and McLachlan recorded the ballad “Don’t Let Go” three weeks ago for Adams’ soundtrack to the upcoming DreamWorks animated film “Spirit: Stallion Of The Cimarron.” The actual sessions for the song were conducted a mere two days before McLachlan became a mom, Adams’ spokeswoman, Kim Blake, said.
“It was very close,” Blake told Canoe on Monday. “(Adams) wanted to get it done, in case anything happened (with the pregnancy).”
McLachlan and husband Ashwin Sood announced earlier this month that their first child, a girl named India, was born on April 6.
McLachlan recently took a six-month break from work on the follow-up to her 1997 studio album “Surfacing”. She had completed nine songs for the project before going on hiatus.
“Spirit: Stallion Of The Cimarron” is due in theatres May 24, and the soundtrack is expected in stores May 14.
While most animated films are created after the music has been composed, Blake said Adams was approached to write music for “Spirit” once the movie had been completed.
“Don’t Let Go,” the duet with McLachlan, was composed specifically for the film. While the song will appear on the soundtrack, it is one of three tracks on the album that will not appear in the finished movie, Blake said.
