Moody Blues: John Lodge releases second solo album, Moody Blues tour dates announced.

Moody Blues member John Lodge has confirmed the launch of his second solo album, 10,000 Light Years Ago.

It’s to be released on May 4 via Esoteric Antenna, with the title track to appear as a digital single on April 14.

Lodge says of the follow-up to 1977’s Natural Avenue: “Back in the 60s the Moody Blues wrote a stage show which became the album Days of Future Passed. The theme encompassed the past, present and future experiences of our lives.

“With 10,000 Light Years Ago I’ve continued this theme of constant evolution. Everything in the future remains in reach – and although the past is behind us, it once was our future.”

He adds: “I think that this theme has continued in the music of The Moody Blues and in my music, and it’s a musical record of our generation travelling through life. With10,000 Light Years Ago I have continued this theme of constant evolution, as everything in the future remains in reach, and although the past is behind us, it once was our future.”
