HITS Daily Double


Verve/UMC will release Brian Eno’s first studio album in six years—and his first with vocals since 2005—FOREVERANDEVERNOMORE, on 10/14.

First single “There Were Bells” is out today.

Eno wrote “There Were Bells” for a performance with his brother Roger Eno at the Acropolis in August 2021, which prompted reflection on the climate emergency, a theme explored throughout the album.

“Like everybody else—except, apparently, most of the governments of the world—I’ve been thinking about our narrowing, precarious future, and this music grew out of those thoughts,” Eno says. “Perhaps it’s more accurate to say I’ve been feeling about it, and the music grew out of the feelings. Those of us who share those feelings are aware that the world is changing at a super-rapid rate and that large parts of it are disappearing forever, hence the album title.”

Eno produced with contributions from Leo Abrahams, Roger Eno, Peter Chilvers, Clodagh Simonds, Cecily Eno, Darla Eno and Jon Hopkins.
