A remix of Enya's hit single "Only Time'' and the Irish singer's interpretation of the Christmas classic "Silent Night" will be released as a benefit single next month.
Enya and Reprise Records will donate the profits from "Oiche Chiun (Silent Night)" to the International Association of Firefighters, according to the label.
"Only Time" has emerged as a healing anthem for a post-September 11 America (see [article id="1450126"]"Enya's Flow Is Up There With Ja Rule, Bubba Sparxxx"[/article]). The upcoming single includes a remix by longtime Enya collaborators Nicky Ryan, Christian B. and Marc Dold, with lyrics by Roma Ryan.
The song is featured on A Day Without Rain, which was released nearly a year ago. The album has since sold 8 million copies worldwide and is currently #2 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.
"Willows on the Water," which previously appeared on Enya's 1998 box set, A Box of Dreams, is also included on the single.
Enya's "Oiche Chiun (Silent Night)" was first released on the A Very Special Christmas Volume 3 compilation in 1997.
The new single will be released on November 20, the same day Enya's "May It Be" and "Aniron ... (I Desire)" will be released on "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" soundtrack (see [article id="1450014"]"Enya — Not Led Zeppelin — Leads 'Lord Of The Rings' Soundtrack"[/article]).
