Listen to Brian Eno's 21-minute Title Track Off His New Album 'The Ship'

"I wanted to make a record of songs that didn't rely on the normal underpinnings of rhythmic structure and chord progressions but which allowed voices to exist in their own space and time, like events in a landscape."

"I wanted to make a record of songs that didn't rely on the normal underpinnings of rhythmic structure and chord progressions but which allowed voices to exist in their own space and time, like events in a landscape."

It's been nearly 4 years since Brian Eno dropped an album, but the genre bending producer is looking to make up for lost time with an expansive new release. 

The Ship, due to be released by Warp Records on April 29th, breaks all the rules and boundaries of conventional electronic music with Eno's own unique style of experimentation. Textures fuse together to reveal an immersive space created by one of the true masters of electronic soundscapes. Here's what he had to say about producing the new material: 

“‘The Ship’ 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.”

Listen to the new track below and find more information via his website.

"This album is a succession of interleaved stories. Some of them I know, some of them I'm discovering now in the making of them. Wave. After. Wave. After. Wave."
