The official soundtrack to the 2024 Gary Hustwit documentary film Eno will be released by UMR on April 19, featuring songs from Brian Eno’s historic artist’s catalog.

The hugely influential musician, producer, visual artist, and activist is the subject of a new career spanning documentary that is uniquely generative: a film that’s different every time it’s screened. Compiled from hundreds of hours of video footage, music and interviews, the film explores Eno’s music, art, and ideas, giving the viewer intimate personal insights into his creative processes.

Accompanying this groundbreaking new film is a soundtrack that serves as a companion audio journey touching on Eno’s output throughout his rich career. The 17 tracks included on the album feature work from early solo outings such as 1974’s Taking Tiger Mountain and 1975’s Another Green World, acclaimed collaborations with the likes of David Bryne, John Cale, Cluster, and more recently, Fred again… The collection leads all the way through to music from his latest album, FOREVERANDEVERNOMORE, and his 2022 appearance at the Acropolis in Athens with his brother Roger.

While it would take a very extensive box set to fully cover Eno’s work over the past 50 years, this release has managed to fit music from 14 different albums throughout his entire recording career. Within it are three previously unreleased recordings, and the first, “Lighthouse #429” is out now. Check it out above.

This instrumental track is taken from Eno’s Sonos radio station, “The Lighthouse,” where the programming exclusively delves into his extensive archive spanning his career. “Lighthouse #429” is the first track to have had a public release from the station.

Eno also reflected on his creative process, saying, “Picasso once said: ‘Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working.’ I don’t wait to be inspired: I start working and (if I’m lucky) I become ‘inspired.’ And if I’m not lucky I keep at it until my luck changes. I’m obstinate and confident that I will get somewhere in the end if I keep at it.”
