Todd Terje (Feat. Bryan Ferry) – “Johnny And Mary” (Robert Palmer Cover)
The Norwegian house producer Todd Terje has been cranking out singles and EPs for a decade, but he’s never released a proper album. That changes next month, when Terje gives us his proper debut LP, which is naturally titled It’s Album Time. We’ve already posted the Moroder-zone first single “Delorean Dynamite,” and the next track he’s shared is a very different one, even if it’s just as synthetic and playful as that song. “Johnny And Mary” is a smoothed-out cover of a just-as-synthy 1980 single from the ’80s cheese-rock king Robert Palmer, and it’s got a softly weary vocal from the legendary Roxy Music frontman Bryan Ferry. Listen below.
It’s Album Time is out 4/8 on the Terje’s own Olsen Records.
