Listen: Todd Terje and Bryan Ferry cover Robert Palmer’s “Johnny and Mary”

    Norwegian DJ/producer Todd Terje has unveiled the second single from his incredibly-titled debut album, It’s Album Time, due out April 8th via his own Olsen Records. Following his rewrite of the Miami Vice theme “Delorean Dynamite”, Terje joins forces with Roxy Music’s Bryan Ferry to cover Robert Palmer’s 1980 single “Johnny and Mary”. Together, the pair transform the New Wave ballad into something more sweeping and romantic, with Terje’s churning keys and ambient synth serving as the evocative backdrop for Ferry’s low, breathy croon.

    Listen in below:

    Several album tracks — specifically “Strandbar”, both parts of “Swing Star”, and “Inspector Norse” – have been previously released in one form or another.
