The new album from U.K. songster Bryan Ferry, Avonmore, will be released on Nov. 17. It will include collaborations with such notables as Johnny Marr (The Smiths), Nile Rodgers (Chic), Flea (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Ronnie Spector (The Ronettes), Mark Knopfler (Dire Straits) and Maceo Parker (James Brown’s band). The video for the “Loop De Li,” the album’s first single, is available exclusively via http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/culturevideo/musicvideo/11209254/Bryan-Ferry-Loop-Di-Li-exclusive-video.html
Ferry is planning a 20-date tour next year — hopefully, he’ll make it back to the Lincoln Theatre, in Washington, D.C., and make up the two shows that he had to cancel last month. The setlist will feature tracks from Avonmore, his vast solo catalog and, of course, his days as the frontman of Roxy Music.
