Thomas Dolby has broken a 20-year silence with the glorious 'A Map Of The Floating City'. 
 
The album features appearances by special guests Mark Knopfler, Regina Spektor, Eddi Reader, Bruce Woolley and Imogen Heap.
 
After a productive period in Silicon Valley with his company Beatnik Inc, Dolby has returned to the UK recording new material in his renewable energy-powered studio built aboard a 1930s lifeboat in the garden of his beach house on England's North Sea coast.
 
Dolby says, "The songs are organic and very personal. The album is a travelogue across three imaginary continents: In Amerikana I'm reflecting with affection on the years I spent living in the US, and my fascination with its roots music. Urbanoia is a dark place, a little unsettling. I'm not a city person. And in Oceanea I return to my natural home on the windswept coastline."
 
The deluxe edition, containing a bonus disc of instrumentals and bonus tracks, is presented in an 8 panel digi-pack with a 16 page booklet and a fold-out map poster.
