Electronic music legend Thomas Dolby is back with his first album in almost two decades. A characteristically eclectic mix, the album is his most personal yet and features Regina Spektor, Eddi Reader, Mark Knopfler and Imogen Heap.
Having achieved global success with his hit singles She Blinded Me With Science and Hyperactive! in the mid ’80s, Dolby went on to work with everyone from Bowie to MOR superstars Foreigner via Michael Jackson.
A Map of the Floating City is, in Dolby’s words, a “travelogue across three imaginary continents” comprising of Amerikana, Oceanea and Urbanoia and is an intensely personal piece of work.
We are particularly proud to be able to preview this album exclusively to Society of Sound members.
This month’s LSO Live album is Mahler’s First Symphony conducted by Valery Gergiev.
Although he has an international reputation as a conductor of Shostakovich, he is far less well known for conducting Mahler. We think the LSO Live Mahler cycle will soon change that.
