Brian Eno: Midnight Chats – Episode 127

Welcome to a bonus episode especially for Earth Day

Here’s a surprise… When you get an icon like Brian Eno on the podcast, it cannot wait until our usual Monday night drop.

Welcome to this special, bonus “Earth Day” (22 April) episode of the podcast, with a truly trailblazing musician, producer and activist. Working with everyone from U2 to Talking Heads, Coldplay to Grace Jones, he’s also deeply passionate about climate action, and is the co-founder of Earth/Percent.

Today they launched Sounds Right where a group of huge artists are releasing new music where “NATURE” is the featured artist, and receives credit and royalty. A radically simple initiative. Brian’s song is one he originally co-wrote with David Bowie. ‘Get Real’ features hyenas and some wild pigs.

You can watch clips of the podcast online now, just give us a follow on Instagram @midnightchatspod.

Eno also talks about the release of the “definitive Brian Eno documentary” – a new movie premiering in London on about the story of his life – a generative film powered by AI that will be different every time it’s screened. Plus, he played me some previously unheard music and talks about the geopolitical state of the world in 2024 (which is bad).
