Album News: Bryan Ferry, Olympia

Roxy Music don’t get as much love around these parts as they really deserve. They’ve released some fantastic albums, and Bryan Ferry and Brian Eno are worthy solo musicians in their own rights. The latter is back with a new album, Olympia, which is his first album of new material in eight years. There are 8 Ferry originals on here, as well as covers of Tim Buckley’s ‘Song to the Siren’ and Traffic’s ‘No Face, No Name, No Number’.

Thanks to Mitya for pointing out that ‘You Can Dance’ and ‘Alphaville’ are both leftovers from an aborted 1996 album called Alphaville (about half of which ended up on 2002′s Frantic).

As well as that, the album features guest spots from Brian Eno, David Gilmour, Jonny Greenwood, Nile Rodgers, Mani, and Flea. A fine cast indeed. It should be a great album. It’s due October 22nd on Virgin Records, with lead single ‘You Can Dance’ out in August.

Tracklist:
1 You Can Dance
2 Alphaville
3 Heartache by Numbers
4 Me Oh My
5 Shameless
6 Song to the Siren
7 No Face, No Name, No Number
8 BF Bass (Ode to Olympia)
9 Reason or Rhyme
10 Tender Is the Night
