Brian Eno shares title track from new LP, ‘The Ship’
Brian Eno has shared the title track from his new album The Ship. He says of the 21-minute ambient piece:
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.
Draw a hot bath and listen via Spotify, below. The Ship is out April 29 via Warp. Eno was to have talked at NYC fest The Grid, but that talk — and the rest of The Grid — has been canceled. Bummer.
