According to Exclaim, Brian Eno is set to release a collaborative album with electronic producer Jon Hopkins and guitarist Leo Abrahams on Warp Records. Full details have yet to be announced, but the album is supposedly due sometime in the fall. While initial rumors late last month anticipated a solo Eno release — due in no small part to Eno’s website and this Warp page — the news of the collaboration was “leaked” on Abraham’s “webdiary”:
Lastly, there’s an album out soon by Brian Eno, with myself and Jon Hopkins. It will be on Warp. It contains the fruits of several years of jams between the three of us. I’ve not heard anything quite like it — it sounds ‘live’ and ‘alien’ at the same time. Some things have been permitted to survive, which only Brian would have had the courage to let go, and it’s so much the better for it.
Mysteriously, the paragraph has since been omitted from the original post. Don’t worry, though; we have our investigative team working on this developing story 24/7. In the meantime, check out this performance by Eno, Hopkins, and Abrahams:
UPDATE (01:45 PM CST): Warp’s publicist informs us that the collaborative album is being billed as a Brian Eno album.
