2009 Майк Олдфилд живёт на Багамских островах, куда он переехал из Мальорки.

2011 27 июля Олдфилд выступил на церемонии открытия XXX летних Олимпийских игр, во время которой исполнил отрывки из своих знаковых композиций - Tubular.

The compilation concentrates on Oldfield's early album releases, his two re-workings under the "Tubular Bells" banner, his excellent "Songs of distant earth", and the more recent "Voyager" album. Many of his other albums are therefore absent altogether, and his singles output is largely ignored too (although space is found for "Portsmouth" and the superb "Moonlight shadow").

This page is a discography for the musician Mike Oldfield. Although the introduction theme was used in The Exorcist, Tubular Bells (1973) was not a soundtrack album. Oldfield was commissioned to produce the music for NASA's The Space Movie in 1979; no soundtrack album was released at the time. However a DVD and CD soundtrack (though the CD content is just the audio track from the DVD, including voiceovers and sound effects) were issued in October 2015.

This compilation (P) 1997 Warner Music UK Lt. Virgin Records Ltd. (C) 1997 Oldfield Music Limited for the United Kingdom and Oldfield Music Overseas Limited for the world outside the United Kingdom. Made in Germany by Warner Music Manufacturing Europe.

The Essential Mike Oldfield is a live concert video by Mike Oldfield. It was recorded live at the Knebworth Festival on 21 June 1980 in front of 45,000 people and the interviews are in Oldfield's studio. It was released on Laserdisc and VHS in 1980. Written by Mike Oldfield, except "Sailor's Hornpipe", Traditional. Interview part 1. "Guilty". Interview part 2. "Tubular Bells part 1". Interview part 3. "Tubular Bells part 2" (including The Sailor's Hornpipe).

XXV: The Essential is a compilation album written and mostly performed by Mike Oldfield and released in 1997. The Roman numerals XXV are to represent that this is a compilation pieces of the first 25 years of Oldfield's work. The 14-track album features songs from the first 25 years of Oldfield's career, when he was on the Virgin Records and Warner Music labels. Oldfield's version of " Women of Ireland " although from his previous album of new material, "Voyager", was released as a single from this compilation album in 1997 and titled "Women of Ireland XXV". The track "Tubular Bells III" is an early version of the main introduction theme ("Source of Secrets") from Oldfield's then forthcoming album, Tubular Bells III. The differences between this version and the album version are there is a male vocal instead of a female vocal and there is different instrumentation.

Mike Oldfield’s sixth album was a beautiful blend of instrumentals and songs that showed how he was able to adapt to the shifting musical mores of the new decade. Released in October 1980, it features two of his most loved instrumentals, QE2 and Taurus, as well as cover versions of Wonderful Land by the Shadows and, surprisingly perhaps for the time, Arrival by Abba.

An artist like no other. P I hope you will enjoy listening to the new album as much as I have enjoyed making it.
