Why Mike Oldfield's returning to Ommadawn

Mike Oldfield gets back to his acoustic origins on fan-friendly new album

Mike Oldfield releases new album Return To Ommadawn through Virgin EMI on January 20 – and this sees him bowing to popular demand.

“When I first began to think of what I should do for my new album, I went on social media and asked the fans for their opinion. And so many of them seemed to want me to go back to the acoustic style of the first three albums, and of these it’s Ommadawn that appears to be their favourite one.”
