Paul and Mike Oldfield
Anyone one no anything about Paul working with Mike Oldfield ? Mike Oldfield is releasing a new studio album in 2014 called Man On The Rocks and Paul is listed along with Annie Lennox as been involved in the album . Wonder if they got together at the 2012 Olympics opening ceremony both played there ? Will be interested to hear what they have recorded together , always liked Mike

Ah - I can understand the confusion: http://www.mikeoldfieldofficial.com/news.php?item=15
Mike's 25th studio album has been produced by Mike with legendary British producer Stephen Lipson (Jeff Beck, Paul McCartney, Annie Lennox).
That entry lists the previous working credits of the producer Stephen Lipson only, the names in brackets are not involved on the album. Shame, I too like Mike Oldfield, but Paul and his paths seldom, if ever, cross. Martin PS Stephen Lipson co-produced along-side Trevor Horn and Paul three tracks from Flowers In The Dirt - "Rough Ride" Figure Of Eight" and "How Many People". He worked with Trevor Horn and probably came with him as part of Paul's choice to use Trevor Horn on those tracks. So Stephen never produced a whole album for Paul in the manner the credit given on Mike's web-site might suggest. Interesting Flowers In The Dirt crops up now as NEW is released, It was another album in which Paul used multiple track by track producers rather than one specific whole album producer.
