I was informed today about the forthcoming Brian Eno solo album, Lux, which drops in North America on November 12, 2012. Information is scant now but this is what his record label shared in the latest Brian Eno mailing. I love his genius ability and the stimulation he generates as a visionary artist. I hope to write more about Lux as information comes to light.
LUX is Brian Eno’s first solo album on Warp Records and his first solo album since 2005’s Another Day On Earth. Eno sees it as a continuation of his ‘Music for Thinking’ project that includes Discreet Music (1975) and Neroli (1993).
LUX is one of Eno’s most ambitious works to date; it is a 75-minute composition in twelve sections that evolved from a work now housed in the Great Gallery of the Palace of Venaria in Turin, Italy. The album is Eno’s third for Warp, following two collaborative albums Small Craft on a Milk Sea (with Jon Hopkins and Leo Abrahams) and Drums Between The Bells (with Rick Holland).
