Comeback? He never went away:

Roxy Music's Bryan Ferry is set to make a comeback with the release of his new album "Olympia" next week.

 

The album, which will be released on October 25, is set to be a chart-topper if the success of the single "You Can Dance" is anything to go by. Released in August, it quickly became a club hit across Europe.

I don’t get the appeal of this song. It might grow on me if I listened to it repeatedly, but why would I do that? I’m pretty sure it’s a lackluster tune with alarmingly tuneless vocals that tries very hard to sound like everything we expect from late-period Roxy and Ferry’s “Slave to Love” period. Before you insist I do not understand Bryan Ferry, I bought “Do the Strand” as a 45 when it was first released, okay? So don’t even think of starting that one.

 

Here’s one video version, which takes us back to the glamorous world of bored models pretending they know what to do with maracas.

 

 

Then there’s the Hell version, which tries for an Avedon vibe.

 

 

Like it?
