Amarantine is an album by Irish musician Enya. The album was released on 22 November 2005. It won the Grammy Award for Best New Age Album for 2007 and is the third top selling new age album of the 2000s in the US, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Two songs from the album were released as singles: the title track "Amarantine" and "It's in the Rain". "Someone Said Goodbye" was released as a promotional single in the United States as well. The album was very successful and sold more than 6.5 million copies overall.

The plugin used relies heavily on HTML5 for mp3 playback and so far I get acceptable results only when using Google Chrome. I hope licensing issues will be solved for Mozilla Firefox someday.
