In other news, a redone video of Mary to the Improbable Pop Remix version has been made. Nelson had wanted to change parts of the original video and with the remix he has had the chance. He has some how managed to include more of Sarah into this video. The Mary (Improbable Pop Remix) audio can be purchased through or the Canadian iTunes shop. This is the version of the song that has been receiving rotation on the radio and fans were asked to request.

Lastly, you may have noticed that on the sidebar of this blog are now some moving pictures. The images are the most recent pictures uploaded to the Sarah Slean group pool on Flickr.
Feel free to browse and upload your Sarah pictures to the group.
