Today, (7th December 2012), Mike Oldfield posted an update on his progress on his rock album…
Hi Everyone !
Just finished the last demo for the rock album. There are 10 songs altogether and I just sent the last one off to Steve Lipson who is hard at work on a film project in LA. These songs are deeply personal and come from real life experiences past and present. Music straight from the heart.
There is just some legal stuff to work out with Mercury and then we can start organizing the live sessions. There will be 5 tracks recorded by the best live musicians in LA and the other 5 live in London. Then Steve and I will work together across the planet to record the vocals and of course my guitars.
Caroline will be in charge of the live Twitter feeds from the actual sessions. All exciting stuff so here’s to an amazing 2013. Lots of good wishes !
