Brian Eno and Underworld’s Karl Hyde Team Up for ‘Someday World’ Album

Nine-track LP due out in May via Warp

Brian Eno and Underworld’s Karl Hyde have performed together and collaborated on a few tracks in the past, but now the pals have united to record a full album. Going by the moniker Eno-Hyde, the duo will release Someday World on May 5 via Warp Records. The LP features nine songs co-written by the pair, and is produced by Eno and 22-year-old Fred Gibson.

“I had a big collection of ‘beginnings’ sitting around waiting for something to galvanise them into life, to make them more than just ‘experiments,'” Eno said in a statement. “That something turned out to be Karl Hyde.”

“It’s a bit like being nine years old again,” Hyde added. “You have no idea what you’ve just been given, the record button has been pressed and you’re on. And then these unlikely patterns start to happen. The biggest surprise was discovering we both had a love of Afrobeat, Cyclical music based in live playing. When Brian played me these early tracks it was, ‘Oh my god, this is home! Can I borrow a guitar?”

Sunday World — which features guest spots by Tessa Angus, Nell Catchpole, Marianna Champion, Will Champion, and many more — will also come in a double-disc special edition that adds four bonus tracks and unique packaging. The LP is available now for pre-order.
