Details about the new Robert Wyatt album "Comicopera" have been released.

The former Soft Machine member and revered musician has finished recording and self-producing the follow-up to his Mercury Music Prize nominated "Cuckooland" and it features several guest artists across it's three 'acts.'

Paul Weller, Brian Eno and Roxy Music's Phil Manzanera all appear on the new record, and Wyatt says he was aiming to capture the sound of the group together.

He says: "Music isn't just an abstract pleasure, it is a company, when you play a record. Why I like Duke Ellington and Charles Mingus, the Big Bands -is because every character in the band is identifiable as that person - there's this group of humans in a room."

"Comicopera" is divided into three acts- 'Lost In Noise', 'The Here And The Now', and 'Away With The Fairies'.

The full tracklisting is as follows:

Act One: Lost In Noise
1 Stay Tunes
2 Just As You Are
3 You You
4 A.W.O.L.
5 Anachronist

Act Two: The Here And The Now
6 A Beautiful Peace
7 Be Serious
8 On The Town Square
9 Mob Rule
10 A Beautiful War
11 Out of The Blue

Act Three: Away With The Fairies
12 Del Mondo
13 Cancion de Julieta
14 Pastafari
15 Fragment
16 Hasta Siempre

The album is released through Domino on October 8.

Wow, I'm so excited! Considering the great minds he's working with and his approach he's describing this could be one of his best records ever.

I'm pretty sure he's recorded Del Mondo before for an Italian Tribute album to himself.

I'm still looking forward to and I still need to get many of his albums.  I think I'll do some shopping later this month.

This sounds truly promising! Weller helped Wyatt really "rock out" on SHLEEP, and I hope we'll get the same kind of excitement again.

Excellent news - I hope it's up to the standards of Shleep and Cuckooland.

I've got my doubts about how much to contribute
