20 February 2024, 11:20 | Written by Tyler Damara Kelly

The official soundtrack to the generative film Eno – a definitive documentary about visionary musician and artist, Brian Eno, has been announced alongside first track, "Lighthouse #429".

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.

“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," Eno says of his creative process.

Eno will have its UK premiere at the Barbican cinema, London on 20 April, with a post-film conversation with Brian Eno, Gary Hustwit and Brendan Dawes. For exclusive access to purchase tickets, pre-order a copy of the official soundtrack by 4pm GMT on 21 February.

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 Byrne, John Cale, Cluster and more recently, Fred again... all the way through to music from his latest album, FOREVERANDEVERNOMORE, and his 2022 appearance at the Acropolis in Athens with brother, Roger.

The official soundtrack to the Gary Hustwit documentary film, Eno, will be released by UMR on 19 April, and is available to pre-order now.
