Bryan Ferry Works With Jonny Greenwood, Flea, Others

The last time forever-suave former Roxy Music frontman Bryan Ferry released a solo album, it was a collection of Bob Dylan covers, and we didn’t much like it. But Ferry’s forthcoming album looks pretty interesting.

Rolling Stone reports that Ferry is currently at work on a new solo album, and he’s lined up an impressive roster of collaborators: Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood, Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist (and sometime Thom Yorke sideman) Flea, and the great Chic mastermind Nile Rodgers. The album is due in the summer of 2010, and Ferry’s posted some footage of its recording sessions, soundtracked by the 1985 Ferry solo track “Boys and Girls”.

Ferry’s calendar has been pretty full lately. Earlier this year, he appeared on Teufelswerk, the new album from German electroclash veteran DJ Hell. In January, Hell will release his Ferry collaboration, “U Can Dance”, as a single on his International DeeJay Gigolo label. Folks like Carl Craig, Simian Mobile Disco, and the DFA’s Tim Goldsworthy will remix the tune, and you can watch a teaser for the video here.

Ferry also appears on “Shameless”, a track from the British dance duo Groove Armada. “Shameless” will appear on the forthcoming Groove Armada album Black Light, which is due for a February 23 U.S. release via OM.
