"La Puerta del Cielo / Seven Lives" is the first single from Enigma's seventh album Seven Lives Many Faces.[1]

Overview[edit]

The track "Seven Lives" had been featured on German TV as the signature theme to the public broadcaster EinsFestival's coverage of the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. The single was digitally released in Germany on 8 August and physically on 15 August. The single reached top 50 in Germany and remained in the top 100 for several weeks.

The title of the song "La Puerta del Cielo" (The Gate of Heaven) is in Spanish but its lyrics are in the Balearic dialect of Catalan: Allà dins es canal / En es peu da sa muntanya. The other song that has Catalan words is "Between Generations". Both songs are co-written by Michael Cretu and Margalida Roig.
