The new Clannad album will be be titled "Nádúr" (pronounced as Ned-dur). This is the Irish Gaelic word for Nature. Irish author Colum McCann has written the liner notes for the new album and sums the title up nicely by saying; "Clannad – the family - have taken the local and made it universal once again. Is é seo nádúr dhúchasach .... "this is their inherent nature" It will always be so." The new album is set to be released on 23 September 2013, which will be followed by a series of East and West Coast shows.
