Dutch prog legends Focus have announced a new album, 11, which will be released in January. However the new album will be available on the band's November UK tour dates.

When asked about the album, Thijs van Leer responded poetically:

"Wow, my joy could not increase
To see this new release
It has Mazzel, Palindrome and Heaven
Plus a title track called Eleven
Both angelic and a beast
It’s Focus, to say the least!"

The current line-up of Focus, which features Thijs van Leer, Pierre van der Linden, Menno Gootjes and Udo Pannekeet – completed the new studio album earlier this year and are debuting the CD edition on their November UK Tour.

The 11 track album will be released as a CD, gatefold coloured LP and Download on the band’s own In And Out of Focus Records, via Cherry Red, in late January. The album features artwork by Roger Dean.

For fans who can’t attend the November tour, the only place where the CD can be ordered online (with orders being fulfilled in November 2018) is the band’s own webstore.  For fans wishing to pre-order the CD and LP for when they are released in January, Amazon is starting to take pre-orders now for CD and for album.

Former ELO cellist Hugh McDowell dead at 65

Hugh McDowell, known for his work with ELO, Wizzard and Wetton/Downes, has died at the age of 65
 
Cellist Hugh McDowell, who was best known for his work with ELO and Wizzard throughout the 70s, has died at the age of 65.

McDowell also worked with Wetton/Downes on their Icon albums, with Geoff Downes confirming the news of the musician's death on Twitter.

The Yes keyboardist says: “Very sad news to hear that good friend and super cellist, Hugh McDowell has passed away.

“Apart from his legendary ELO contributions, he was an integral part of all of our Wetton/Downes Icon albums. A great musician and gentleman sadly missed. Thank you Hugh.”

Producer Rob Aubrey also paid tribute to McDowell, saying: “Sad to hear of the death of Hugh McDowell. I recorded him a number of times for John Wetton and Geoff Downes.

“Always fun and a great ear for a cool part… in awe of his tales of life on the road and in the air with ELO. RIP sir.”

McDowell joined the ELO lineup in 1972 but later left the band to hook up with Roy Wood and Bill Hunt in Wizzard. But after a short stint, he returned to ELO in 1973 to replace Colin Walker.

He appeared on ELO’s Discovery music video in 1979, but did not appear on the studio album.

Along with his work with ELO and Wetton/Downes, McDowell played cello on Asia tracks I Will Remember You and An Extraordinary Life from the 2008 album Phoenix and also recorded with Saint Etienne and Simon Apple among others.

No official cause of death has been announced.

Have to sneak past the Tyke border but Mickey did it to watch Frost* from the other direction so it can’t be all that hard
You need to adopt a stealth mode, but if I can do it, so can you  :)
If you need a forged passport, I know some people  :) :) :)
