Songs from the unreleased Dave Stewart produced Bryan Ferry album have began to surface on YouTube.

Stewart alerted fans to the rare tracks, saying on Facebook “you know Bryan Ferry (Official) and I wrote quite a lot of songs and versions no-one ever heard just found one!”

‘Alphaville’ was recorded between Ferry’s ‘Mamouma’ (1994) and ‘Frantic’ (2002). Ferry also released the covers record ‘As Time Goes By’ in 1999.

The songs recorded for Alphaville were ‘Love War’, ‘Cruel’, ‘Alphaville’, ‘Nobody Loves Me’, ‘I Don’t Want To’, ‘Sonnet 18’, ‘You Can Dance’, ‘One Way Love’, ‘Hiroshima’, ‘This Love’, ‘San Simeon’ and ‘Fool For Love’.

Alternate versions of ‘Cruel’, ‘Nobody Loves Me’, ‘San Simeon’ and ‘Fool For Love’ surfaced on Ferry’s ‘Frantic’ in 2002. ‘You Can Dance’, ‘Alphaville’ found their way to ‘Olympia’ in 2010.

‘You Can Dance’, ‘San Simeon’, ‘Sonnet 18’, ‘Alphaville’, ‘One Way Love’ and ‘Hiroshima’ can be found on YouTube.
