Michael Bublé and Sarah McLachlan have much in common They’re both from Vancouver, both in their 40s and each has two children — boys for Michael and girls in the case of Sarah. Michael has sold 30 million records worldwide and won four GRAMMY Awards, while Sarah has sold 40 million and won three. This week, the two Canadian pop superstars released new singles that continue to showcase their respective talents.
Michael Bublé: “Nobody But Me”
Bouncy and totally Bublé-esque, Michael’s latest is a playful number that finds the crooner admitting that he’s a jealous guy. Who can blame him when he’s married to Argentinian acting beauty Luisana Lopilato? The tune, which has just the right amount of swing and sense of fun to please his fans, is the title song of his forthcoming album.
Michael took to Instagram to express excitement that his new single can now be heard on radios everywhere.
Sarah McLachlan: “The Long Goodbye”
Sarah’s new one is also perfectly McLachlan-esque: a poignant breakup song full of romantic pain yet beautifully transcendent and cathartic. Although we’re sorry to hear that her heart has been broken, Sarah’s always been able to channel emotional suffering in great songs, and has done so again. With its cascading guitar and fluctuating vocals, the song makes us long for a new album from the “Building a Mystery” singer.
News of her new single came on Twitter, where Sarah was quick to tweet about the song along with a new photo.
I'm excited to announce I'll be releasing a new single, "The Long Goodbye", on Friday :) pic.twitter.com/Pqf1ugsO2l— Sarah McLachlan (@SarahMcLachlan) August 17, 2016
