Rumors of a new Brian Eno album have finally been confirmed. The legendary musician/producer is scheduled to release a record with guitarist Leo Abrahams and electronic composer/producer Jon Hopkins via Warp Records with a tentative release date of this fall, Exclaim reports.
Abrahams, who has released solo albums and also worked with artists such as Nick Cave and Paul Simon, wrote a blog post about the collaborative project. The text has since been deleted from his official site, but his musings have been immortalized all across these very interwebs. “It contains the fruits of several years of jams between the three of us,” Abrahams wrote. “I’ve not heard anything quite like it—it sounds ‘live’ and ‘alien’ at the same time. Some things have been permitted to survive, which only Brian would have had the courage to let go, and it’s so much the better for it.”
