Internationally acclaimed Canadian East Coast singer/songwriter Tara MacLean is releasing a new version of her 2000 hit song, “If I Fall.” The re-recorded version comes from her new album, Sparrow.
The song was originally intended to be an upbeat and inspiring theme song for a TV show. Tara had never written music for anyone other than herself, and found that it was a wonderful exercise that allowed her to be unabashedly hooky in her approach. With this song, Tara wanted people to feel like there was nothing they couldn’t do.
“I love this part of the song because in re-recording it, I realized how prophetic this song has been for me, in my search for stillness, in my dreams coming true,” says Tara. “Now I look at my life and career and see how I have achieved so much of what I set out to do, and this song was a vehicle that brought me there.”
Her new album, Sparrow, is a companion soundtrack to her upcoming memoir about her life in music, which will be released with a major publisher in March 2023. The album is a reimagined collection of her past work, as well as brand new material.
