Bryan Ferry to release 'Avonmore' special edition
Bryan Ferry has announced the Avonmore Special Edition deluxe set and new single 'Soldier of Fortune', both out via BMG Recordings on December 4th. The single, which was written with Johnny Marr, features Ferry on keys and vocals and Marr on guitar.
Limited to 1500 copies only and with 100 copies being personally signed by Bryan himself for fans pre-ordering from the www.bryanferry.com official store, the Avonmore Special Edition is a unique edition of his most critically acclaimed album in recent years. The initial release of Avonmore late last year garnered rave reviews across the board and his subsequent sold-out UK headline tour went on to wow audiences across the country.
The front cover features a specially commissioned illustration of Bryan Ferry with signature by renowned fashion illustrator and portrait artist David Downton and a 48-page-book containing stunning exclusive live photography of Bryan and his spectacular 10-piece band taken by tour photographer Matthew Becker during the 2015 Avonmore Tour; plus an introduction by journalist Richard Williams and specially printed lyric sheets.
The deluxe set also includes the original album Avonmore on both heavyweight white vinyl and CD. Bonus material then adds four exclusive Avonmore remixes on a second white heavyweight 12" vinyl plus two more CDs of remixes of album tracks including unreleased cuts from Leo Zero, Idjut Boys and Synapson. The set is completed by a DVD featuring the official videos for singles Loop De Li, Johnny & Mary and Driving Me Wild.
Pre-orders for the Avonmore Special Edition will be available from 28th October via http://smarturl.it/AvonmoreSEStore with general release on December 4th.
