Introduction to the album

At the end of September 2012 a new album by Sarah is announced. It is called Dreamchaser and introduced at the official website via a beautiful short movie, with Sarah looking out over the sea to the horizon and speaking the following text:
How far can I see? 10 miles? 20?
We can't see the glaciers from the desert,
or the seabed from the mountain peak.
We'll never meet all the 7 billion people that walk the earth,
but we know they are there.
We are prepared to believe what we cannot see.

But we can see the moon and the sun,
not 20 miles but 93 million miles away.
And an endless veil of stars, so distant
it questions our belief.

Our dreams take us to places we'll never reach
and open doors into other worlds
and windows into ourselves.
The journey to the stars may be as close to a dream
as reality may take me.
It is clear as I will see the beauty of the universe,
I will see deeper inside myself, closer to my dreams.

I am not a dreamer -- I am a dreamchaser.

Comments

The song Angel sounds really great!
So I guess (and hope) that Dreamchaser will be wonderful album.

The album has arrived and I had a quick first-listen: it sounds good.
More remarks to follow.

 
NOTE:
When I pre-ordered the album at the official Sarah Brightman website
in December 2012 the release was still announced for January 2013 and
it was not possible to select a "CD+DVD" option, just a "CD".
So now I only have the CD, not the DVD ...
Goes to show that trying to be early is not always a good idea.

NOTE-2:
I do not have the "Dreamchaser Super Deluxe Package".
