Warp Records has announced a 12 Nov release date for ‘LUX’, Brian Eno’s first solo LP (notwithstanding his 2011 collaborations with poet Rick Holland) since 2005’s ‘Another Day On Earth’.

A 75 minute composition divided into twelve parts, the label defines it as a continuation in terms of “themes and sonic textures” of Eno’s long-playing ‘Ambient’ series – as began with 1978’s ‘Music For Airports’ and ended (temporarily, as the case may be) in 1982’s ‘On Land’.

Then again, Warp also says that Eno himself views the new record as a sequel to his ‘Music For Thinking’ project. Oh, and that it has “evolved from a work currently housed in the Great Gallery of the Palace of Venaria in Turin, Italy”.

So there you go. We assume it will resemble at least one, if not all, of those things.

And if you’re curious as to what the ‘LUX’ tracklisting looks like, it’s four tracks labelled ‘LUX’ 1-4. So, that’s that.
