New Brian Eno Album, LUX, To Feature ‘Music For Thinking’

Warp Records has announced LUX – Brian Eno’s first solo album since 2005’s Another Day On Earth. 

On LUX, Eno expands upon the types of themes and sonic textures that were present on such classic albums as Music For Films, Music For Airports and Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks. Eno sees it as a continuation of his Music for Thinking project that includes Discreet Music (1975) and Neroli (1993).

LUX is a 75-minute composition in twelve sections that evolved from a work currently housed in the Great Gallery of the Palace of Venaria in Turin, Italy. The album is Eno’s third for Warp, following two collaborative albums Small Craft on a Milk Sea (with Jon Hopkins and Leo Abrahams) and Drums Between The Bells (with Rick Holland).

LUX will be released on November 12 2012 (13 in N. America) on CD and Download, and December 10 2012 (11 in N. America) on LP on Warp Records.

  1. I was an Eno fan when he was still in Roxy. To my ears his greatest instrument is his voice. I wish he’d use it more. It’s so emotive because of it’s lack of expression. And his lyrics!!!
