Eno and Hyde - together in electric dreams

Brian Eno and Karl Hyde of Underworld are set to release Someday World in May on Warp Records, with guest musicians including members of Coldplay and Roxy Music. 

The album features nine songs, composed and sung by Eno and Hyde together with supporting musicians, including Tessa Angus, Coldplay drummer Will Champion, Roxy Music's Andy Mackay, Nell Catchpole, and John Reynolds.

Commenting on the release, sometime U2 producer Eno said: "I had a big collection of 'beginnings' sitting around waiting for something to galvanise them into life, to make them more than just 'experiments'. That something turned out to be Karl Hyde.”

“It's a bit like being nine years old again," said Hyde. "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?” 

The track listing for Someday Cities is: The SatellitesDaddy’s CarA Man Wakes UpWitnessStrip It DownMother Of A DogWho Rings The BellWhen I Built This WorldTo Us All.
