The former Nightwish singer Tarja Turunen has spoken about her work on the upcoming Tubular Beats album. In a press release from earMusic/Edel, she claims that Mike is one of her idols, saying:

"It was such a pleasure to work with Mike Oldfield. The song turned out to be even better than I could have ever expected. Mike has a vast career and experience in pop, instrumental and electronic music. I love his music and his personal guitar sound.
My work in this song was inspired by Mike’s ‘Islands’ featuring another of my youth idol: Bonnie Tyler. A way to thank them for the nice melodies I grew up with was to add a line from their hit. And I believe Mike liked the idea too. That’s how ‘Never Too Far’ was born. Hope that you enjoy the song as much as I do."

The album is still on schedule for release on February 1st.

This sure raises high expectations...

It may be online only but remix album mentioned in a UK paper :-
Daily Express

Introduces Mike as a Guitar Great ... Obviously true but he's rarely described that way in the press.  :)
