Limited edition digipack containing 2nd CD of instrumental versions, plus a 16 page booklet & poster. Thomas Dolby, the ground-breaking '80s star whose smash hits 'She Blinded Me With Science' and 'Hyperactive!' helped define the MTV generation, will break his 20-year silence with a long-awaited new release titled 'A Map Of The Floating City'. The album features appearances by special guests Mark Knopfler, Regina Spektor, Natalie MacMaster, Eddi Reader, Bruce Woolley and Imogen Heap. Of the album, which is divided into three parts, Dolby says, 'The songs are organic and very personal. The album is a travelogue across three imaginary continents: In Amerikana I'm reflecting with affection on the years I spent living in the U.S., and my fascination with its roots music. Urbanoia is a dark place, a little unsettling . . . I'm not a city person. And in Oceanea I return to my natural home on the windswept coastline.' EMI. 2011.
