Lodge launches Light Years trailer

The Moody Blues’ John Lodge has released a seven-minute trailer for his second solo album 10,000 Light Years Ago.

The follow-up to 1977’s Natural Avenue is launched on May 4 via Esoteric Antenna, with the title track set to appear as a single on April 14.

Lodge recently explained: “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.”
