Alright, alright - keep your shirts on. It's true. The vinyl isn't out yet but we're in love with the new Bryan Ferry release Olympia here at TVD HQ. So, in the spirit of Thanksgiving 'n all and playing it forward, we've got the brand new one to award to one of you guys.
Oh—and another thing—we got a 16" x 16" litho of the above cover featuring the age/coke defying Kate Moss signed by Mr. Ferry himself. It's one of only 200.
First however, some background:
The legendary Bryan Ferry returns with his brand new studio album Olympia, his debut for EMI’s Astralwerks Records. This will follow the release of the brand new single “You Can Dance” on August 10th.
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.
The album features eight new songs, and Ferry’s moving adaptation of Tim Buckley’s “Song To the Siren”; an amazing version of Traffic’s “No Face, No Name, No Number” as well as collaborations with Scissor Sisters (“Heartache By Numbers”) and Groove Armada (“Shameless”).
Enter to with the autographed litho and a copy of 'Olympia' by leaving a note in the comments to this post. Chime in with your own enthusiasm for Mr. Ferry and/or Roxy Music, and the most convincing and exuberant of the lot will win the giveaway.
We'll give you a week and close this one on Monday, November 22. Remember to leave us a contact email address so we can let you know you've won!
Purchase Olympia at Amazon right here.
