Brian Eno Shares Title Track Of New Album 'The Ship'

Wednesday, 30 March 2016 Written by Laura Johnson

Brian Eno has shared a new 21 minute song, The Ship. 

The song is the title track for the follow up to 2012's 'Lux', which is due for release on April 29 through Warp. Discussing it, Eno said:

“The piece started as an Ambient work intended for a multi channel sound installation in Stockholm, but during the making of it I discovered that I could now sing a low C - which happens to be the root note of the piece. Getting older does have a few fringe benefits after all. From that point the work turned into an unusual kind of song...a type I've never made before where the vocal floats free, untethered to a rhythmic grid of any kind.”
