A few days ago he was interviewed on KLOS, the Los Angeles based radio station, hinting that he had started thinking about new solo releases.

"Intermittently. I've got a bunch of songs, and when I get some time something will develop. I've just come back from Brazil where we had a performance of Ca Ira, which is my opera about the French revolution. That took a lot of time, and travel, and effort..."

I've got a lot of songs, and it might be that it's two albums; it might be one political album, and it might be one album that's about love. Or they might be connected."
