Vinyl LP pressing. Amarantine is the sixth studio album by Irish singer, songwriter and musician Enya, originally released in 2005. Following the release of her compilation box set Only Time - The Collection (2002), Enya took a short break before she started work on a new album in September 2003, her first since A Day Without Rain (2000). Amarantine was recorded in Ireland with her longtime recording partners, arranger and producer Nicky Ryan and his wife, lyricist Roma Ryan. It marks Enya's first album without a song recorded in Gaelic lyrics, and marked her first sung in Japanese and Loxian, a fictional language created by Roma. Amarantine was a commercial success, reaching #8 on the UK Albums Chart and #6 on the Billboard 200 in the United States, where it sold one million copies in it's first month of release.
