Eno's station, 'The Lighthouse', will debut hours of unreleased material from across his career

Brian Eno has launched his own station on Sonos Radio HD.

Dubbed The Lighthouse, the station will share a number of new tracks by the producer, as well as a vast collection of unreleased tracks from across his career. Plans for the station have been split into three parts, with 'Program 1' seeing Eno discuss the previously unreleased material that the station will share, as well as his motivations for opening up his archives.

In a statement, Eno said: "The music that will be broadcast from The Lighthouse covers a pretty broad period. The earliest track we have at the moment is from 1990. We will be adding more pieces as time goes on. New pieces will be entering the mix and some of that will go back even further.

"You will be listening to a sequence of tracks which will be randomly generated, chosen by chance, so there is the possibility of odd, I hope exciting, collisions — things that are very slow, next to things that are very fast, next to things that have no tempo, no pulse at all."

Eno joins the likes of Björk, FKA twigs and Thom Yorke in hosting his own station via Sonos Radio. You can check out all artists' stations via Mixcloud or the Sonos app.
