Again is the Alan Stivell's seventeenth album released in 1993 under the Keltia III label by Disques Dreyfus and Sony Music in France. He registers again his greatest successes of the seventies with updated arrangements and help of prestigious guests : Kate Bush, Shane MacGowan from the Irish group The Pogues, the Senegal singer Doudou Ndiaye Rose, the French singers Laurent Voulzy and Breton singers Gilles Servat and Yann-Fañch Kemener.

The album, several times golden record with more than 300.000 sold copies, boosts the interest for the Celtic music, the base for a new wave of his popularity, especially in Brittany and in France. The public immediately acclaimed the album and Stivell during his French tour, with two concerts at the Bataclan, Paris, in January 1994.[1] That is when the Héritage des Celtes of his former guitarist Dan ar Braz is going to arouse the craze of the general public.
