Bryan Ferry - Soldier Of Fortune

November 17 sees the release of Avonmore, Bryan Ferry's first album of new songs since 2010's Olympia. The 10 track album includes the recent Todd Terje collaboration where Ferry did a guest spot on a take on the Robert Palmer classic "Johnny & Mary", and of course also recent single "Loop De Li". Now a third track from the album appears called "Soldier Of Fortune", a slow-moving, lovely ballad on which Johnny Marr turns up with a beautiful acoustic guitar pattern. Mark Knopfler also appears on the album, as well as Flea, Nile Rodgers, Ronnie Spector and others. I think we may be on for a real treat with Avonmore. Let me also mention that I saw Ferry perform live in Oslo less than two weeks ago, a great show featuring lots of Roxy Music stuff and some of his very best solo tracks. Ferry is 69 years old, still sounding like he's in his prime.
