The 21-minute tune is hearable on Eno's website, or at the bottom of the page.

Explaining the track, Eno says: “The piece started as an Ambient work intended for a multi channel sound installation in Stockholm, but during the making of it I discovered that I could now sing a low C - which happens to be the root note of the piece. Getting older does have a few fringe benefits after all. From that point the work turned into an unusual kind of song... a type I've never made before where the vocal floats free, untethered to a rhythmic grid of any kind.”

The Ship will be accompanied by a series of installations where listeners will be able to hear an "alternative telling of The Ship in multi-channel 3-dimensional sound installations,"

The Ship is out via Warp on 29 April.
