Warp Records Previews New Eno CD, Lux, In Midtown Church

Lux Brian Eno Cover Art

The Church for All Nations on West 57th Street was the super secret location for  today’s premiere US listening event for Brian Eno’s upcoming new album, entitled Lux. Lux is Eno’s first solo album on Warp Records and his first solo album since 2005’s Another Day On Earth. If you are familiar with Eno’s classic ambient works, such as Music For Films, Music For Airports and Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks then the themes and sonic textures of Lux will sound very familiar to you. It certainly reminded me a lot of Music for Airports crossed with a denser ambient work such as Jeff Pierce’s The Hidden Rift, which is one of my favorite atmospheric albums.

According to Warp Record’s website, Eno sees the album as a continuation of his Music for Thinking project that includes Discreet Music (1975) and Neroli (1993).

The album is broken down into four sections as follows:

Track Listing
1. LUX 1 (19:22)
2. LUX 2 (18:14)
3. LUX 3 (19:19)
4. LUX 4 (18:28)

Lux will be released in the US on CD and as a Download on November 13th, 2012, and on Vinyl LP on December 10th, 2012.
