Natacha Atlas and Marc Eagleton
It's not a "regular" Natacha Atlas album; it's credited to "Natacha Atlas/Marc Eagleton Project," and she has described it in an online interview as "New Age." Anyone who has heard her albums will remember passages (sometimes at the beginning, sometimes partway through a song) where the dance beats are in abeyance and she improvises complicated vocal cadenzas over a drone. Foretold... consists largely of passages like that.
