Win one of two pairs of tickets to an exclusive playback of Eno's new album LUX

As we've previously reported, Brian Eno's releasing his new album LUX on November 12 (CD/download) and December 10 (vinyl) via Warp.

So far we know that the album is a single 75 minute-long composition split into 12 sections, that "evolved from a work currently housed in the Great Gallery of the Palace of Venaria in Turin, Italy" and that it follows the ethos of his earlier albums Music For Films, Music For Airports and Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks, but precious little else.

However, lucky readers, two of you (and two friends) can be among the first people in the country to hear it, as we have a pair of tickets for an exclusive and intimate (no more than 70 punters will be allowed in) album playback next Friday, October 26, at a secret central London location.

To be in with a chance of winning, just e-mail your answer to the following question to, with ENO in the subject line, by midday Monday October 22. To read the Quietus Competition terms & conditions, click here.
