It is little wonder that when Pixar ("Finding Nemo", "Toy Story", "Up") were searching for the perfect, authentic singing voice to feature in the trailer to "Brave", their new animated film set in the ancient highlands of Scotland, their research led them to one of the Western Isles' true contemporary treasures – Scots Gaelic singer Julie Fowlis. "My Love Is On The High Seas" is a beautiful Gaelic lilting air which first appeared on Julie's debut album "Mar A Tha Mo Chridhe (As My Heart Is)" in 2005. Disney-Pixar featured it in a US TV trailer for Brave which was broadcast in February this year during an ad break for the 2012 Oscars ceremony. With viewing figures of over 38 million, this single usage most likely exposed Scots Gaelic song to its single largest ever listening audience. Brave will be on national release throughout the UK from August 17th and the build-up to what will surely be one of the year's biggest hits will be massive, with equal exposure for Julie, so now is the perfect time to stock up on the special digipak release of this extraordinary album.
