I was horrified to learn that Mike Oldfield turned 60 last year. I've followed his music ever since his first album, 1973's 'Tubular Bells'. To realize that it's been over 40 years since then makes me feel terribly old . . .
He's just released his latest album (which is also his 25th studio album), 'Man On The Rocks'. It's a return to his rock roots, and brings in several other musicians to play and sing his music. I recently bought it, and I've been greatly enjoying listening to it and getting to know his 'new sound'. (Every Oldfield album is a 'new sound', because he's constantly experimenting and developing new aspects of his music. All of them reward intensive listening.)
Here's the title track.
And here's Mike Oldfield and singer Luke Spiller talking about the album.
The album's available on YouTube, as are all its tracks individually. Thumbs up from me.
