Brian Eno to release new ambient album ‘Lux’ — part of ‘Music for Thinking’ series

Brian Eno will release his first solo album in seven years this fall, a 75-minute ambient composition titled Lux that his label, Warp Records, says “finds him expanding upon the types of themes and sonic textures that were present on such classic albums as Music For Films, Music For Airports and Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks.”

The album is due out Nov. 12 in the U.K. and Nov. 13 in the U.S. on CD and digital, to be followed on Dec. 10/11 as an 180-gram 2LP set. According to Warp, Lux is a continuation of the “Music for Thinking” project that includes 1975’s Discreet Music and 1993’s Neroli.

Lux, Eno’s third album on Warp, is billed as one of his “most ambitious works to date,” a 75-minute composition in twelve sections — and split into four nearly 20-minute tracks — that “evolved” from a work currently housed in the Great Gallery of the Palace of Venaria in Turin, Italy.

  1. A follow up in the vein of Neroli is always welcome in my book.
