Details about the new Robert Wyatt album “Comicopera” have been released.

The former Soft Machine member and revered musician has finished recording and self-producing the follow-up to his Mercury Music Prize nominated “Cuckooland” and it features several guest artists across it’s three ‘acts.’

Paul Weller, Brian Eno and Roxy Music’s Phil Manzanera all appear on the new record, and Wyatt says he was aiming to capture the sound of the group together.

He says: “Music isn’t just an abstract pleasure, it is a company, when you play a record. Why I like Duke Ellington and Charles Mingus, the Big Bands -is because every character in the band is identifiable as that person – there’s this group of humans in a room.”
