UMC are to issue Film Music 1976-2020, a new Brian Eno compilation that brings together 17 tracks from Eno’s most recognisable film and television work, spanning five decades.

Eno has composed more than 20 soundtracks for directors such as David Lynch, Danny Boyle, Peter Jackson, Michelangelo Antonioni, Derek Jarman and Michael Mann. He has also scored extensively for TV, including UK crime drama ‘Top Boy’ which earned him a BAFTA.

This new collection features over an hour of music and includes compositions such as ‘Ship in a Bottle’ from The Lovely Bones, ‘Prophecy Theme’ from Dune, ‘Deep Blue Day’ from Trainspotting, ‘Late Evening in Jersey’ from Heat and ‘Beach Sequence’ from Antonioni’s last film Beyond The Clouds.

Film Music 1976-2020 will be released on 13 November 2020.

    Nice collection, and glad to see a track from the film ‘Heat’ included, however would’ve liked to have seen ‘Force Marker’ included, which was played during the more memorable bank heist scene. ‘Late Evening in Jersey’ is a more quieter ambient piece that featured in the film, which was re-worked/re-named as a track called ‘Hazard’ from his 1997 album ‘The Drop’ if i’m not mistaken.

  2. Jacob says:

    The track An Ending (Ascent) was also featured in Danny Boyle’s film 28 Days Later, and I first discovered Brian Eno on that films soundtrack. Since then I’ve collected nearly everything on CD from Here Come The Warm Jets through Reflection.

  3. Mark says:

    ‘Prophecy Theme’ from Lynch’s ‘Dune’ is a stunning piece of music.

  4. Gary Fowles says:

    A bit of a shame to include music that is available on Eno albums already such as Deep Blue Day and An Ending. Nice to gather up the other odds and ends though.

  5. Prince Fan says:

    His 1990 collaboration with John Cale – Wrong Way Up – has been reissued in the past couple of months with two bonus tracks.

  6. Heraldo says:

    2LP had been £19.99 on Amazon UK So I would expect it will come down again.

    BTW – despite how it looks on the picture (some sort of bronze colour) the vinyl is just normal black – I checked with a mate at UMC.

  7. Shane says:

    Wow. Truly ghastly artwork there.
    So offputting.

      “Don’t judge a book by its cover.”

      A cover can enhance an album experience but will never dissuade me from buying an album. Camouflage’s Bodega Bohemia is superb but its cover – a close-up of chips/fries is very confusing. It does not change my opinion of the album though.

    This was on sale for pre-order on Recordstore.co.uk a week or so ago with the carrot of a limited edition A2 print for the first 250 purchasers. Sold out in minutes. Checked the site again now and hey presto the “limited edition” A2 print is available again.

  9. MARK LEVY says:

    I like An Ending and I also have Thursday Afternoon in my collection. I wonder how that would work on vinyl?

    Wot, no Windows 95 theme?
