Bryan Ferry knows how to dance
Bryan Ferry is embracing dance music on his next record.
The former Roxy Music frontman has recently re-recorded his collaboration with Groove Armada - as well as working with other dance artists - and is set to open Pete Tong's Wonderland night in Ibiza this summer.
He said: "Ibiza is an island full of surprises and I imagine me playing there must be one of them.
"However I have been a big fan of various kinds of dance music for a very long time, and my first visit to Ibiza was more than 30 years ago, so I feel fairly qualified and very enthusiastic about performing there."
Bryan was initially unsure about collaborating with Groove Armada for the song 'Shameless' - whom he was originally approached to guess on the album of - but ended up liking the song so much a reworked version will be on his own album.
Tom Findlay from the dance act explained: "He'd never done a collaboration before, he keeps his own counsel and he's quite circumspect.
"We sent him a few tracks and the actual song he really liked, he recorded the vocal on it and then we totally changed the backing track because we thought his vocal needed something else."
Bryan's version of the song is renamed 'Shameless (Rock'n'Roll desire)'.
The singer has also recently worked with Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour, and Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood, the Red Hot Chili Peppers' bassist Flea producer Nile Rodgers and dance artists Trentemoller and DJ Hell.
Meanwhile Bryan will perform with Roxy Music this summer at England Lovebox and Bestival festivals as well as Sonar festival in Spain.Posted on 18 Mar 2010 16:30 to category : Band / Celebrity News
