/

Thomas Dolby, the man behind such enduring hits as “She Blinded Me With Science,” and “Hyperactive,” is readying his first new studio album in 20 years, A Map of the Floating City, an eclectic mix of styles recorded at Dolby’s own home studio, and featuring several guests, including Mark Knopfler and Regina Spektor.  Icon Fetch talks to the video pioneer about doing most of the work himself this time around.  He also tells a great story about playing with David Bowie at the monumental Live Aid concert in 1985.
