Bryan Ferry talks to The Mighty Boosh about his new album

The Mighty Boosh's Noel Fielding has spoken to Bryan Ferry about his new solo album 'Olympia'.

The pair spoke ahead of the Roxy Music man releasing his new record on Monday (October 25) - at the studio where Ferry recorded the LP in a video interview with NME.

Asked by Fielding if he was "quite frightened " by the violence, Ferry replied: "No I was quite up for it! I was sitting in my school blazer just watching."
