ROGER AND BRIAN ENO ANNOUNCE FIRST DUAL ALBUM 'MIXING COLOURS'
Pair have shared the first song, Celeste
Brian Eno will release his first joint album with brother Roger on March 20 via Deutsche Grammophon.
The album, titled Mixing Colours, will include eighteen new tracks composed by the duo, all of which are named after hues like Burnt Umber and Verdigris. The pair shared the first song off the album, titled Celeste, which was composed and produced by the brothers.
"There's a huge commonality between what we're interested in," Roger said in a statement. "These pieces are very Impressionistic and very much to do with sonic quality, sonic colour," Brian added.
Mixing Colours is available for pre-order and will be available in both CD and double LP formats, as well as digital. The album artwork features abstract paintings by artist Dom Theobald in keeping with the theme of the songs.
Last year Brian Eno released Apollo: Atmospheres & Soundtracks - Expanded Edition, a reissued version of his 1983 work Apollo: Atmospheres & Soundtracks and a second effort, For All Mankind, created with Roger and Daniel Lanois. While Brian and Roger have collaborated significantly in the past, Mixing Colours marks their first official joint album.
