Brian Eno readies four albums of rare and unreleased material for All Saints

This year, studio wizard Brian Eno already dropped two albums of original material with Karl Hyde, curated a Fela Kuti box set, and wrote a few angry letters about Israel. It’s been a busy one for this guy. Now, the iconic English producer is diving back into the vaults to reissue four solo albums from the 90s that have long been out of print. Founded in 1992 as an offshoot of Eno’s Opal Records, All Saints will release CD and vinyl editions of Nerve Net, The Shutov Assembly, Neroli (CD only), and The Drop.

Each album comes complete with a bonus disc of unheard material, including the lost album My Squelchy Life, recordings from 1985-1990, an hour-long ambient piece from 1992 called “New Space Music,” and an alternate version of an LP that was sold in limited quantities during Eno’s “77 Million” installation at Tokyo’s Laforet Museum. These are some ultra-deep cuts for the Eno completist, so if you’ve got an aspiring mad scientist in your family, this might be the perfect stocking stuffer. They’ll even get a 16-page booklet with each album, containing photos and writing from Eno himself. All four records are available on December 4, and the full tracklists can be found here; personally, I’m still waiting on Music for People.
