Listen to 'Drums Between The Bells' now

Brian Eno and Rick Holland's new album 'Drums Between The Bells' is available to stream now.

First meeting almost ten years ago, Brian Eno and Rick Holland exchanged numbers and began a decade long period of collaboration. Sending each other material, the two explored how music could intersect with poetry.

Utilising the spoken word, Brian Eno applied his unusual working methods to Rick Holland's poetry. Bringing the project into focus, the pair honed the ideas into a more rigourous album format over the past 18 months.

'Drums Between The Bells' is the result. Out now on Warp Records, the project utilises guest voices alongside readings from Brian Eno and Rick Holland themselves.

An evocative, deeply unusual album 'Drums Between The Bells' unfolds over a series of listens. Gaining some intriguing reviews, it's clear that Brian Eno has again side-stepped preconceptions of what his music can do.
