LONDON, UK (Top40 Charts/ Virgin Records) - Bryan Ferry's been a rather busy boy of late. Not content with reforming three quarters of universally revered glam rock behemoths Roxy Music
for a slew of gargantuan festival spots, Ferry is set to release his first newly recorded material since 2007's 'Dylanesque'. And this time he's roped the illusive Eno onboard.
Alongside (deep breath) Pink Floyd's David Gilmour, Scissor Sisters, Red Hot Chili Pepper Flea, Radiohead Jonny Greenwood, Groove Armada, Nile Rodgers of Chic infamy, Marcus Miller and quite unthinkably, Mani. From the Miami sheen of 'Shameless' to Ferry's poignant take on Tim Buckley's 'Song To The Siren', 'Olympia', co-produced by Bryan himself, looks set to evoke the timeless swooning balladry for which Roxy Music were oft overlooked and alongside original accomplices Phil Manzanera and Andy Mackay, they're too assert themselves once again, Stronger Through the Years, just as they proclaimed to be all those many moons ago.
The full track-listing for 'Olympia' is:
You Can Dance
Heartache By Numbers
Me Oh My
Song To The Siren
No Face, No Name, No Number, BF Bass (Ode To Olympia)
Reason Or Rhyme
Tender Is The Night
'Olympia' is to be released through Virgin Records on 25th October, preceded by leading single 'You Can Dance', out 9th August.
