John Lodge reveals animated video

Moody Blues man John Lodge has premiered his animated video for 10,000 Light Years Ago with TeamRock.

It’s the title track from his second solo album, to be released on May 4 via Esoteric Antenna.

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.”

The video was made by Rupert Lloyd, who also illustrated the album sleeve. The track is available as a single today.
