FOREVERANDEVERNOMORE, the forthcoming album from Brian Eno, is available to pre-order exclusively via the SDE shop on the blu-ray audio format.

Eno needs no introduction. Musician, producer, visual artist and activist, he first came to international prominence in the early Seventies as a founding member of Roxy Music, followed by a series of solo albums and collaborations. His work as producer includes albums with Talking Heads (such as Fear of Music and Remain in Light), Devo, U2 (The Joshua Tree, Achtung Baby et al), Laurie Anderson and Coldplay, while his long list of collaborations include recordings with David Bowie (Low, Heroes, Lodger & Outside), Jon Hassell, Harold Budd, John Cale, David Byrne, Grace Jones and most recently with his brother, Roger, on Mixing Colours. In August 2021, they performed together for the very first time at the Acropolis in Athens. 

Brian Eno’s visual experiments with light and video continue to parallel his musical career, with exhibitions and installations all over the globe. To date, he has released over forty solo albums including Here Come The Warm Jets, Another Green World, Ambient 1: Music for Airports, Apollo: Atmosphere and Soundtracks, Small Craft On A Milk Sea and Lux to name just a few. In April 2021, he launched EarthPercent, which raises money from the music industry for some of the most impactful environmental charities working on the climate emergency

About the new album

FOREVERANDEVERNOMORE is Eno's 22nd studio album and was recorded in his West London and Norfolk studios. The long-player sees Brian sing on the majority of tracks for the first time on an album since 2005’s Another Day On Earth.

It includes the song 'There Were Bells' which concerns the current climate emergency, a theme that is explored throughout the album and 'We Let It In’, a haunting hymnal in which Eno’s daughter Darla sings an angelic counterpoint to Brian’s vocal. 

The album is made up of 10 distinct songs and Brian has experimented on the record using tonal over major chord changes. Of it, he says, “My voice has changed, it’s lowered, it’s become a different personality I can sing from. I don’t want to sing like a teenager, it can be melancholic, a bit regretful. As for writing songs again -  it’s more landscapes, but this time with humans in them.

I like creating worlds, that's what I do as an artist. Now after quite a long absence of humans in those worlds I have tried putting one in and seeing how they feel in the world I've made."

The Atmos Mix was created by Brian Eno himself. This is what the mix engineer, Emre Ramazanoglu, had to say about Brian's work on the Atmos Mix of FOREVERANDEVERNOMORE:

"It was fascinating approaching this Atmos mix with Brian in the room. He approached the mix in an extremely unorthodox fashion, removing the concept of a 'front' in the mix stage. It's a fully immersive experience unlike others I have mixed. The song was still kept at the heart of the Atmos transformation though and he paid enormous attention to the position of each element and how that supported the piece as a whole. There will be also be differences from the stereo mix other than the spatial reimagining, due to the creative process that involved certain elements being subtly different from the original stereo masters."

SDE has heard the Atmos Mix and concurs with Emre. It's spectacular spatial audio mix of a wonderfully atmospheric album. This is one you do not want to miss!
