The LP features re-recordings of his own compositions, performed by the Bryan Ferry orchestra in the style of the 1920s.

"I started my musical journey listening to a fair bit of jazz, mainly instrumental, and from diverse and contrasting periods," Ferry said in a statement.

"I loved the way the great soloists would pick up a tune and shake it up - go somewhere completely different - and then return gracefully back to the melody, as if nothing had happened.

"More recently, I have been drawn back to the roots, to the weird and wonderful music of the 1920s - the decade that became known as the Jazz age."

The record includes re-workings of hit singles 'Don't Stop The Dance', 'This Is Tomorrow' and 'Slave To Love'.

The Jazz Age follows up 2010's Olympia, which peaked at number 19 on the charts.

The album's tracklisting appears below:

1. Do The Strand
2. Love Is The Drug
3. Don't Stop The Dance
4. Just Like You
5. Avalon
6. The Bogus Man
7. Slave To Love
