Brian Eno covers The Velvet Underground's “I'm Set Free” on new album.
Speaking about the inspiration for this new album, Eno said, “On a musical level, I wanted to make a record of songs that didn’t rely on the normal underpinnings of rhythmic structure and chord progressions but which allowed voices to exist in their own space and time, like events in a landscape. I wanted to place sonic events in a free, open space”.
According to a press release.“The Ship” will be accompanied by a series of installations where listeners will be able to hear an "alternative telling of “The Ship” in multi-channel 3-dimensional sound installations".
“The Ship” tracklisting:
01. The Ship
02. Fickle Sun
(i) Fickle Sun
(ii) The Hour Is Thin
(iii) I’m Set Free
The album will be available as a CD, a Collector’s CD, double vinyl and coloured double vinyl.
