LEO ABRAHAMS ENLISTS BRIAN ENO ON "CHAIN"
Abrahams' upcoming Daylight LP also features Warpaint's Stella Mozgawa.
Leo Abrahams is longtime collaborator with Brian Eno (He's also worked with Roxy Music, Nick Cave, Florence and the Machine, Paul Simon, Pulp and countless others). Abrahams is gearing up to release Daylight, a new solo album due November 20 via Lo Recordings.
"The sound of Brian's stacked vocals is, for me, one of the greatest sounds in music history," Abrahams said in a statement. "On Chain I originally sang all the vocals myself, but as a result of some unconscious plagiarism people started saying it reminded them of Brian! So I asked him to do it, and the end result is both of us singing together. He is very generous with his time and, luckily for me, loves to sing."
Daylight features drums from Warpaint's Stella Mozgawa. You can find the album art and tracklist below. On September 26, Abrahams will curate a tribute to Eno's work at London's Barbican.
