BRIAN ENO AND KARL HYDE RELEASE STUDIO FILM TO CELEBRATE 'SOMEDAY WORLD'
The black and white film was shot in Eno's studio during the second day of rehearsals earlier this year, and features cuts of the single Daddy's Car (which premiered with The Satellites last month) and another album track When I Built This World.
The nine-track album was composed and sung by the pioneering electronic music pair, and produced by 22-year-old Fred Gibson alongside, naturally, Eno. A support cast of twelve artists, including Coldplay's Will Champion and Roxy Music's Andy Mackay, worked on the set.
"I had a big collection of 'beginnings' sitting around waiting for something to galvanise them into life, to make them more than just 'experiments'," comments Eno in a statement. "That something turned out to be Karl Hyde."
For fans of Eno's work, the new album has more in common with the sonic architect's groove-laden collab with David Byrne on My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts than it does his sparse set Ambient 1: Music For Airports
The album is due May 5.
