Brian Eno is keeping going with the collaborations. After his albums with David Byrne ( “Everything That Happens Will Happen Today” on Todo Mundo, 2008) and Leo Abrahams and Jon Hopkins ( “Small Craft On A Milk Sea”, his debut on Warp), the “father of ambient” is now about to release “Drums Between The Bells” with poet Rick Holland, who wrote all the lyrics. With impatient fans in mind, Wired.com is offering the streaming of the record, which is out on 12th July via Warp Records. Follow this link (or press play in the player below) to hear what it sounds like. The first thing you’ll notice is that there’s no singing - it’s more like spoken word. Furthermore, most of the vocalists it turns out are anonymous people and friends of Eno’s (maybe his accountant or a friend from the gym). Musically speaking, there’s a lot of ambient, but there’s also room for abstract electronica as well as the art-pop he’s been making in recent times.
