A Day Without Rain is the fifth studio album by Irish singer, songwriter and musician Enya, released in 2000. Following a promotional tour in support of her compilation album Paint the Sky with Stars (1997), Enya took a short break before she resumed writing and recording a new album in 1998 with her usual recording partners, producer and arranger Nicky Ryan and his wife, lyricist Roma Ryan. While making the album, Enya started to question about her life and attempted to answered them in the material she was writing. In a musical departure from her previous albums, Enya incorporates a string section which was not a conscious decision. A Day Without Rain was a commercial success peaking at #6 in the United Kingdom and initially, #17 on the Billboard 200 in the United States.
Following the 11 September 2001 attacks, sales of the album and it’s lead single, “Only Time”, skyrocketed after it was used by several radio and television networks in their coverage and aftermath of the attacks. As a result, “Only Time” climbed to #10 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and A Day Without Rain reached a new peak on the Billboard 200 at #2. It became the fifth highest selling album of 2001 in the United States and the best selling new age album of all time with an estimated 16 million copies sold worldwide.
