Sarah McLachlan Splits from Husband

It’s truly sad to say that Sarah McLachlan has split from her husband, Ashwin Sood, who was not only her husband of 11 years but also the drummer in her band. There’s no doubt that her fans are most going to benefit from this, as Sarah is sure to pour out her heart through song but it will be tough to see her go through such a sad time. From US,

“The singer, 40, revealed they have called it quits while promoting her upcoming greatest hits album Closer: The Best of Sarah McLachlan (out October 7).

“I’m separating from my husband, so these are the songs about that,” she told, referring to her two new tunes, “U Want Me 2″ and “Don’t Give Up on Us.”

McLachlan and Sood, who plays drums in her band, have two daughters, Ann Sushil, 6, and Taja Summer, 14 months.

I wasn’t planning on saying anything,” McLachlan said of the split, “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.”

She said “U Want Me 2″ is “about that really uncertain, confusing place atthe end of a relationship when there’s no communication or closure, everything’s still up in the air and there’s a lot of anger and sadness. It’s sort of that working through ‘How do we move forward … with some dignity and grace.'”

Yes, everything Sarah does is with dignity and grace, from her beautiful fashion sense to her brilliant voice. She proves once again though in this interview that she has a true talent for pointing out what we have felt at some point or another and says it in an eloquent fashion while making it totally relatable to everyone. Divorce is sad enough and when there are children involved, it just makes it that much harder and messier. Hopefully we don’t have to hear these two having ugly battles in court for months to come but I have a feeling that Sarah would never let that happen.
