The legendary Bryan Ferry returns with his suave and sophisticated debut on Astralwerks Records,
the brand new studio album Olympia (co-produced by Ferry and Rhett Davies).
The album features musical contributions from Nile Rodgers, Pink Floyd's David Gilmour, Groove
Armada, Scissor Sisters, Marcus Miller, Flea, Mani (Primal Scream, ex Stone Roses), and Jonny
Greenwood of Radiohead.
Olympia sees Ferry reunite on record with members of Roxy Music,
including Brian Eno, Phil Manzanera, and Andy Mackay. This is the first album to reunite them since
Roxy Music's seminal album For Your Pleasure in 1973!
Olympia is a masterpiece of prolific artistry, blending sultry, elegant lyrics with genius compositions
by Ferry, Davies, and innovative, contemporary musicians.
The album features eight new
songs, Ferry's moving adaptation of Tim Buckley's "Song To the Siren," and the amazing version
of Traffic's "No Face, No Name, No Number," as well as collaborations with Scissor Sisters on
"Heartache By Numbers" and "Shameless" with Groove Armada.
This is quintessential Bryan Ferry at his suave, sophisticated best. From the Label
