Looking through the annual Record Store Day release listing for here in the UK, I spotted this. I might have to queue up at the local record shop afer all!

Mike Oldfield - Nuclear - UMC
After his performance at the Opening Ceremony of the 2012
Olympic Games in London, Mike Oldfield surprised and
delighted fans when he returned after a six-year absence
from recording with Man On The Rocks, an album of highly
melodic rock songs made with the cream of LA session
musicians and up-and-coming vocalist Luke Spiller (from the
Struts). It was released to huge acclaim in March 2014. Six
months later, the powerfully poignant track ‘Nuclear’ – a
song about Oldfield’s grandfather’s experiences in the First
World War – was selected by director Hideo Kojima for
inclusion in the Electronic Entertainment Expo 2014 trailer
for computer game Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
The track became an enormous word-of-mouth hit across
world streaming services. For RSD 2016, it is being released
on a strictly limited picture disc 7” single. Konami
Entertainment have granted an image from the game on the
A-side, while the flip features an exclusive still of Mike and
Luke taken during the filming of the ‘Sailing’ video in the
Bahamas in January 2014
