    New Bryan Ferry album, "Avonmore"

    This one seemed to sneak in under the radar. Released a week ago, no mention here (?). http://www.bryanferry.com/driving-me-wild/

    **His 14th solo album, ‘Avonmore’ features eight new Ferry compositions plus Ferry’s cinematic interpretation of Sondheim’s ‘Send In The Clowns’. Produced by Ferry and Rhett Davies in Ferry’s London studio, the album was mixed by Craig Silvey (Arcade Fire/Paolo Nutini) and features performances throughout the album by many of Ferry’s long-term musical partners including Nile Rodgers, Johnny Marr and Marcus Miller.**

    Loving what I've heard. A return to form it seems. So far a few live shows have been announced for the U.K. in April.

    "I'm a collector. And I've always just seemed to collect personalities." - David Bowie, 1973

    I've had this one for months - it's certainly not a new release.

    I thought it was good but broke no new ground.

    Does it matter that this waste of time is what makes a life for you?

    Missed this somehow. Video I posted is new; coinciding with the Avonmore special edition release.

    It came out a little over a year ago.

    Some of the material goes back 25 years: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d9JW-NsXzPM

    From what I've read, he gave 'em up in the late '80s.
    (That's the decade, not his age.)

    His Send in the Clowns is pretty cool! Sondheim is open to interesting interpretations of his work - he allowed a prog metal version of Sweeney Todd a few years ago.

    Yes, my bad...saw this on his website **Monday November 17th sees the release of Avonmore, the new studio album from Bryan Ferry. After his beguiling detour into The Jazz Age and a significant contribution to Bazz Luhrmann’s hit film of The Great Gatsby, Ferry returns to the present day with a compelling collection of eight brand new compositions and two intriguing covers** and thought it was a week ago, not a year ago. Have most of his output but was put off by the '20s jazz release. Lots of new tour dates for Europe announced nearly a year off.

    We had tickets to see him in Boston last year and found that the show was canceled when we were about 3 blocks away from where we were going to park.
