|Released||29 February 2000|
The album title "Another Sky" derives from a line in Steve Cooney's song "Island Girl", which Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh sings on the album with Cooney himself as accompanist. This album is a slight departure from previous Altan albums, in that there is a Bob Dylan song. The album also features the Scots language song, "Green Grow The Rushes" by Robert Burns. A video was released for the Irish track "Beidh Aonach Amárach".

- Allmusic errenously refers to 'Maircad Ni Mhaonaigh ' as the lead singer/violinist; they are mistaken and may have misspelled actual bandmember Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh's name. This is the case with many Allmusic reviews of Altan's music - other errenous 'variants' include 'Maighread Ní Dhomhnaill' [a wholly different person], 'Maighread Ní Mhaonaigh' and 'Maighread'.
