E! News caught up with McLachlan to hear more about her upcoming album and tour. She shared about her song "In Your Shoes" saying, "I found the song even playing it by myself on piano to be sort of a euphoria about it, like it just feels so good when it breaks into that bridge section, like the sky opens up and it's just so hopeful and I wanted that, like the feeling to be grand and hopeful, like her gesture, what happened to her was so huge and momentous and the strength again was so momentous I wanted the song to sort of emulate that," she explained.
McLachlan will also be going on tour and has already received 14,166 personalized tour city requests. So where will she end up? Not sure yet, but here on her thoughts on what her show will be like. Sarah shared, "I'm still trying to figure that out...I am a musician first and foremost and I think I am a really strong musician and I think the songs are strong enough that I don't want to put on a spectacle, I just want to take people on a journey and music is the first and foremost important thing in that. So, for me, I'm looking at the arc of the show and what the flow is going to be and how it's going to feel."
She continued: "I'm going on with a five-piece, which is a considerably smaller band than I'm used to, but I really try to challenge myself and try and come up with strong musical things in a simplistic way...a lot of this record is like that. There's "In Your Shoes" which is quite rocking and pretty, but there's a lot, as you can expect, a lot of really slow, contemplative songs. I hope there's something in there for everybody."
Be sure to pick up Shine On when it releases on May 6th.
