Canadian singer/songwriter Sarah McLachlan and her husband of eleven years, drummer Ashwin Sood are separating, according to a report from Reuters published yesterday at Yahoo Music.

McLachlan's often autobiographical songs on albums like the multi-platinum Fumbling Towards Ecstasy, along with the all-female Lilith Fair concerts she produced, helped bring prominence to female musical artists in the nineties. She has also, in typical fashion, written a couple of new songs about the split. "U Want Me 2" and "Don't Give Up on Us" will both appear on McLachlan’s new greatest hits collection, Closer: The Best of Sarah McLachlan. The album will be released on October 7th by Arista Records.

"I wasn't planning on saying anything. But it's gonna come out at some point. I haven't said anything about it because I've been terrified to, but I figure ... there's no good time to say it, so I just said it," McLachlan says.

McLachlan and Sood both reside in Vancouver B.C., along with their two daughters six-year-old India Ann Sushil and Taja Summer, 14 months. McLachlan’s Fumbling Toward Ecstasy album was recently released in a deluxe remastered “Legacy Edition,” and she is also working on an album of new material which she hopes to release sometime in the next two years.

The two new songs were written by McLachlan and her longtime producer Pierre Marchand. The video for "U Want Me 2" premiered Wednesday on Amazon.com.
