Album is coming out later this year with a tour starting in the Spring (announce back in November).

I hope the new songs sound like his 80's and early 90's or 1992 material but probably not.

Wow, first album in 12 years. That's an eternity in the music industry. Will have to check it out.
Would also love to see him on tour.

Itís actually his first album in 21 (!!) years of new material since ďUpĒ in 2002. He did put out a few albums of imho really boring cover songs and re-recordings of his own work about 12 years ago.

I do hope itís worth the wait for ďI/OĒ which seems like itís been promised for about half my life (um, well, because it has). The new single was good but didnít blow my mind.

To be fair, his cover of Listening Wind from Talking Heads was great. That album was a great concept but he couldnít really get execution from those he covered so it didnít have the impact that it could have.

Iíll check this out when it comes out, really could go either way as this song isnít doing it for me.

Personally, I LOVED the New Blood stuff. I saw him on that tour with the full orchestra and it was amazing!
His cover of My Body is a Cage by Arcade Fire is one of my favorite covers ever.

That said, I am looking forward to more original material.

Heroes was a good cover and Book of Love if that was a new song or cover was pretty good too.

The Book of Love is a cover of a Magnetic Fields tune from Volume 1 of their 69 Love Songs collection. A must listen if you ever get a chance.

New track isnít bad. I donít care for the intro musical riff, but find the rest good. It reminds me of So and Us era.
