It has been a busy 36 hours for Thomas Dolby. In a Wired podcast just uploaded to iTunes, Dolby has just previewed 2.5 new tracks of his first new album in 18 years. ‘A Map of The Floating City’ will be released as three downloadable EPs followed by the CD. This is preceded by today’s release of ‘The Singular Thomas Dolby’, a remastered collection of his CD and DVD singles. Both are getting rave reviews on the web with ‘Oceanea’ the stand-out for me from those previewed on the podcast.
If the posts here seem a little Imogen Heap/Thomas Dolby centric at present, I make no apologies for that; both are fine artists and I’m simply sharing what I enjoy.
