His first solo album in two years has a similar title to a Roxy Music classic.
Bryan Ferry has a roster of all-star guests — and two interesting covers — on his first album in two years.
Avonmore — a title which will likely remind people of the Roxy Music album Avalon — is due out November 18th. It includes guest appearances by Mark Knopfler, Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, ex-Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr, Chic guitarist and well-known producer Nile Rodgers, Ronnie Spector and former James Brown horn player Maceo Parker. It features two interesting covers — the Broadway classic “Send in the Clowns” and Robert Palmer‘s “Johnny and Mary.”
