Sarah McLachlan has released a video where she plays the acoustic version of the single using her piano only.
Sarah McLachlan has performed "Don't Give Up on Us", one of the new songs in her upcoming greatest hits album "Closer-The Best of Sarah McLachlan" which is due October 7. After giving introduction of what the song means, Sarah turns to her piano to perform the acoustic version of the song.
"Don't Give Up on Us" is inspired by her recent split from husband of 11 years, Ashwin Sood. According to Sarah it is "pretty self-explanatory, basically just a plea to give it another chance and keep trying." The other new material in the compilation, "U Want Me 2" is also derived from the painful experience, telling how at the end of relationship there's a lot of anger and sadness.
Sarah is also working on new materials for a new studio album which is slated to hit the stores in the next two years. The greatest hits meanwhile, is available in two versions, the standard 16 tracks and a deluxe edition that contains two CDs. Both of them will include her charting hits like "Adia", "Angel" and "I Will Remember You".
