Brian Eno Announces January Release For Ambient Album 'Reflection'

Tuesday, 15 November 2016 Written by Huw Baines

Brian Eno will put out a new record at the turn of the year.

‘Reflection’ is out on January 1 through Warp, following up ‘The Ship', which was released back in the spring. In a statement (which you can read in full here) Eno said:

“Reflection is the latest work in a long series. It started (as far as record releases are concerned) with Discreet Music in 1975 ( - or did it start with the first Fripp and Eno album in 1973? Or did it start with the first original piece of music I ever made, at Ipswich Art School in 1965 - recordings of a metal lampshade slowed down to half and quarter speed, all overlaid?)

“Anyway, it’s the music that I later called ‘Ambient’. I don’t think I understand what that term stands for anymore - it seems to have swollen to accommodate some quite unexpected bedfellows - but I still use it to distinguish it from pieces of music that have fixed duration and rhythmically connected, locked together elements.”
