An interesting release scheduled for January is a sequel to a previous – and well-aged – album from 1975. That original album is Ommadawn by Mike Oldfield. Released after his successful Tubular Bells in 1973, and his Hergest Ridge in 1974, Ommadawn was readily received by his anxious fanbase. Most of his albums have been excellent to not disappoint.

On January 20, Mike Oldfield will release Return To Ommadawn as a revisitation of that world he created via music. As this will be an import to the US, a week’s delay will set the US availability at January 27. The album will be issued on CD, vinyl LP, DD, and a richly rewarding CD/DVD Deluxe Edition, which will contain the 5.1 Surround mix of the two-track, 40-minute plus, creation.

The new album is being well-bundled via the Virgin Records website. You can head over here and pick a package that suits you.
