An instrumental edition of the critically acclaimed 2022 album, FOREVERANDEVERNOMORE written and produced by Brian Eno.

For this Record Store Day exclusive, Brian Eno has removed his voice from his acclaimed 2022 record, FOREVERANDEVERNOMORE and shifted the focus onto its musical core.

FOREVERANDEVERNOMORE quickly garnered praise from critics and was a distinct departure from recent Eno albums, featuring his vocals as primary focus across an entire album for the first time since 2005’s ‘Another Day On Earth’.

With FOREVER VOICELESS each track from the original album now has it’s instrumental counterpart.

Icarus or Blériot’ becomes ‘Who We Are’ – without Eno’s voice, the emphasis moves over to a nervous, pulsing swell that sometimes threatens to overwhelm, like the soundtrack to a doomed science fiction catastrophe. WATCH

Sherry’ becomes ‘Chéri’. From its first opening chord, the stark poignant beauty of Chéri feels like you are sitting in a quiet, dusky bar at the end of a long evening, built around a beautiful piano melody, swirling keyboards and Leo Abrahams’ exquisite guitar. WATCH

Eno experimented with the use of tonal over major chord changes for the original album that was at times choral and hymnal, sometimes apocalyptic and then hauntingly beautiful. These instrumentals reveal the starkly dramatic and delicate tones that set these shifting moods. The album’s theme, a reaction on the ongoing climate emergency, is now laid out clearly in this hypnotic, sonic landscape.

FOREVER VOICELESS is available on crystal clear vinyl exclusively for Record Store Day as well as selected digital platforms. It is also available digitally paired with the original album together as a Digital Deluxe Album FOREVERANDEVERNOMORE (FOREVER VOICELESS EDITION).
The recordings were written, performed and produced by Eno at his studios in West London and Norfolk and is available HERE and HERE for digital.
