Brian Eno To Release First Solo Song Album In Decades

Legendary artist/producer Brian Eno will release what is described as his first “solo song-based work in decades” this summer. “Another Day on Earth” will arrive June 14 as the first release on the revived Hannibal imprint via Rykodisc.

Eno’s most recent widely available full-length was the 2001 Astralwerks set “Drawn From Life” with German DJ J. Peter Schwalm. In the past year, Astralwerks has overseen the reissue of numerous classic Eno albums, from his early post-Roxy Music solo efforts to his groundbreaking ambient releases from the late ’70s and early ’80s.

Here is the track list for “Another Day on Earth”:

“And Then So Clear”
“A Long Way Down”
“Going Unconscious”
“Caught Between”
“Passing Over”
“How Many Worlds”
