BRIAN ENO PLANS NEW EP
Rick Holland collaboration continues...
Brian Eno's questing spirit has taken him in some unexpected directions. However, few anticipated that the producer would work on an album of poetry. Released earlier this year, Drums Between The Bells saw the renowned studio boffin cross swords with published poet Rick Holland.
The results were startling. Drums Between The Bells used a multitude of voices, with Brian Eno and Rick Holland taking the best part of a decade to finally piece together the finished studio document.
A continuation of the recent collaboration, it finds Brian Eno once again setting Rick Holland's words to music. Out on November 7, Warp Records will once again handle the six-track release.
Brian Eno was involved with the creation of the artwork with his original imagery being incorporated into a design from Nick Robertson.
Set to be released on vinyl, CD and digital formats Panic Of Looking continues directly on from the recent album. Speaking to Clash, Rick Holland explained that some listening conditions work better with the material than others.
"I'm doing a lot of driving at the moment and I find it works well with that" the writer revealed. "If I'm doing something else, like writing or drawing. Brian thinks it's good to wash up to as well."
Panic Of Looking is set to be released on November 7.
