The recent rumours about the release in the near future of a new effort by Brian Eno on Warp Records have been confirmed, albeit with some nuances. While word had it that it would be a solo album, we now know it will be the work of three parties. Guitarist Leo Abrahams, who’s a regular collaborator of Eno (and Ed Harcourt, Nick Cave, Roxy Music and David Holmes among others), declared on his website that the album is forthcoming on Warp and that he’s playing on it. At the end of the entry he says: “Lastly, there’s an album out soon by Brian Eno, with myself and Jon Hopkins . It will be on Warp. It contains the fruits of several years of jams between the three of us. 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.” Now we have to wait for the release date to be confirmed (this coming autumn).
