Praise for the first song released in July, ‘There Were Bells’:

 

a gorgeous, still song, with Eno’s crystalline vocals rising and falling over swells of synth” - Stereogum

An eco-message drift, with Eno joining Mark Hollis or Scott Walker as voice of ether” - Mojo

 

7 SEPTEMBER 2022 (TORONTO, ON)  – Brian Eno will release his latest studio album FOREVERANDEVERNOMORE on October 14 on vinyl, CD, and digital formats. The record was made at his studios in West London and Norfolk and is available to pre-order HERE. A song-based album, Brian’s vocals are featured on the majority of the 10 tracks, which makes it a first since 2005’s ‘Another Day On Earth’.

 

New Track and Video - ‘We Let It In’

 

Unveiled today is the track ‘We Let It In’, a haunting hymnal in which Eno’s daughter Darla sings an angelic counterpoint to Brian’s vocal.  An ominous snarl of sound is detectable, but when Brian concludes “the whole of it in gorgeous flame,” we are left in no doubt that We Let It In. The new video for ‘We Let It In’, also out today, takes its inspiration from the song’s lyrics, and was created by London-based, multi-disciplinary artist, Orfeo Tagiuri and Brian. The handwriting was provided by his granddaughter, Anya. WATCH

 

A vocal album as mentioned, FOREVERANDEVERNOMORE is made up of 10 distinct songs and Brian has experimented on the record using tonal over major chord changes, “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 melancholy, 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, creating sonic worlds. 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."

Released in July as an introduction to the new album, 'There Were Bells’ (CLICK TO WATCH) was written by Brian Eno for a performance by him and his brother Roger at UNESCO World Heritage site, the Acropolis in August 2021. It was 45 degrees in Athens on the day of the concert with wildfires raging just outside the city, prompting his introductory comment "I thought, here we are at the birthplace of Western civilisation, probably witnessing the end of it.

 

‘We Let It In’ and ‘There Were Bells' provide a poignant reminder of the current climate emergency, a theme that is explored throughout the album.
