The producer has delivered an ambient-inspired take on the track from the MC's recent mixtape

Brian Eno has remixed Headie One.

The producer has been enlisted to reinterpret 'Told' which is the opening track track on GANG, the mixtape that Headie One put out earlier this month in collaboration with Fred again... You can hear the ambient-inspired remix just below.

"Through mad fortune my musical dad is Brian Eno," Fred again.. says, adding that "he helps me with all of my stuff and he helped me with the mixtape. It's sick what he made because it sounds like him but it also sounds like he's able to dip into the sonic footprint of the tape."

This marks the second time Eno and Fred again.. have come together on record following on from the latter's contribution to Eno and Karl Hyde's 2014 albums Someday World and High Life. GANG, meanwhile, follows on from Headie One's 2019 album, Music x Road.

Eno was last year presented with a certificate to mark Asteroid 81948 being officially named after him, in addition to reissuing his 1983 Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks LP with a bonus collection of new material.
