McLachlan explored the holidays with Wintersong in 2006, covering seasonal hits and traditional standards. The timing of her next studio album, 2010's Laws of Illusion, coincided with a difficult period in her life. The news of her impending divorce from her husband broke just as the album was set to be released. By this time,
the couple had two daughters together. Their youngest, Taja, was born in 2007.
McLachlan's personal struggles served as inspiration for her latest work, which featured songs about "the strength of hard-earned independence; the trials of love won, lost, and found anew; and the infinite joys of living," according to her website. To support the album, McLachlan toured extensively, including a summer revival of Lilith Fair in 2010.
During her lengthy career, McLachlan has sold more than 40 million records worldwide. And if her past triumphs are any indication, she will continue to enjoy great success as a singer-songwriter.
