'Spirit Of Sylvian' will be the musician's first major engagement with the media for 15 years

Mary Anne Hobbs has announced that David Sylvian will take part in a special show on BBC Radio 6 Music later this month, marking the musician's first major engagement with the media in 15 years.

Speaking on her show today (October 11), Hobbs said: "David Sylvian has been comfortable in his own silence for the best part of 15 years, but of course there’s also a great joy in an artist surfacing after such an extended period of time to share some of their thoughts and ideas."

She revealed that Sylvian had recorded an audio diary from his home in rural New Hampshire, which will be broadcast as part of a special show, titled Spirit Of Sylvian, on October 27. Speaking about the show, Hobbs said: "You'll hear artists who've influenced David, contemporary musicians that he's inspired, his own collaborations and solo work, and also some music that I would like to play to David."
