Hourglass / Theme from Harry’s Game” is a double A-side single by Irish musical group Clannad released to promote their best-of Past Present. This is the band’s only single to feature a lead song that doesn’t appear on any album, and the band’s only double A-side single to date. This copy has been hand signed in black ink by U2’s lead signer, Bono. Two promotional videos were produced to accompany the single, one for each of the lead songs, “Hourglass” directed by Tim Morris & Pól Brennan, and “Theme from Harry’s Game” by Billy Magra. In 1991 the band recorded the LP Anam. It marked a return to the Clannad sound of such albums as Magical Ring and Fuaimand was recorded in two and a half months at the band’s home studio in the hills of Dublin. On Pól’s leaving the rest of the group began sharpening their song-writing skills with Ciarán, already the main source of their original music. The title Anam means “Soul” in Irish and the album had 10 songs. The album was finally released in the USA in 1992 with a different cover and the addition of the previously released Bono duet “In a Lifetime” and “Theme from Harry’s Game”, which had been included in the motion picture Patriot Games. It was also used in a Volkswagen television advertisement, which helped establish the band’s career in the USA and the song went on to win the Billboard Music Award for “World Music Song of the Year”. They dedicated the opening song “Rí na Cruinne” to the One World One Voice charity project.
