"... oddly engrossing ... a curious but likable diversion ..." - The Guardian "Against a backdrop of melodic, dad rock Man on the Rocks celebrates freedom and new horizons." - The Telegraph Oldfield's 25th career release and his first album in six years, Man On The Rocks is a deeply personal collection of songs tackling themes such as mental health, Oldfield's divorce and Hurricane Irene. Rather than rely on veteran singers as he's done in the past, Oldfield recruited young vocalist Luke Spiller from British band The Struts. Oldfield says when he first heard Spiller’s voice he was truly blown away, as it was exactly what he was looking for. "I didn’t actually set out to make an album, I had things inside me that I wanted to express in music and that’s a totally different thing. I had all these emotions bottled up in me and that’s really what it was all about. I suppose it’s like turning on a tap and you don’t know exactly what’s going to come out.” - Mike Oldfield

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
