Bryan Ferry To Release New Album, October 25

Super suave Bryan Ferry will be releasing his latest album, Olympia next week. The first time I heard Ferry as a younger chick, I thought his music sounded sophisticated and sexy. I'm still of that opinion as a significantly older chick. NPR is streaming the record in its entirety. Click HERE to listen. Olympia sees Ferry collaborating with a number of musicians even reuniting on record with members of Roxy Music.

The album features musical contributions from Nile Rodgers, Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour, Groove Armada, Scissor Sisters, Marcus Miller, Flea, ex Stone Roses Mani (Primal Scream) and Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead. It also sees Bryan Ferry reunite on record with members of Roxy Music, including Brian Eno, Phil Manzanera, and Andy Mackay.

Ferry has released a video for "Shameless" from the upcoming album. The video was directed by Ferry Gouw and the song features electronic duo Groove Aramada. Check it out below.
