I remember back in 2017 that Mike actually made a post about how happy and excited he was about how TB4 was going to pan out after completing the demo intro to it, which I believe is what is going to be released here, not to mention that in multiple interviews he stated that he wanted to continue to compose music in Bahamas and not just to rot away.
The way I see it is, Mike was posting regularly to the MikeOldfieldPersonal group until 2018, when all of the sudden he stopped posting much of anything, a pattern that has continued from there on, posting mostly just promotional stuff, and last year he made a post about the number of people who joined the MikeOldfieldOfficial group.
It does seem that something happened back in 2018, but because there has been absolutely no communication or press release at all about it, it is probably something personal.
It's really sad to hear at this point that Mike retired probably back in 2018, and to think that this demo is the last piece of music we will ever hear from him, and I only hope that nothing really bad happened in his personal life for this to have happened, and I just hope he spend his retired life as happy and fulfilled as posible.
I, as I think most of his fans were, was hoping to hear this TB4 album he talked much about years ago, and I'm happy that at the very least we will get a taste of what he was cooking.
Mike Oldfield's music changed my life in very positive ways, and for that I'm going to be forever grateful. Thanks for everything Mike.
