Brian Eno will be embarking on a solo tour after he announced his Ships Across Europe program.

Based around his 2016 album, The Ship, Eno will be performing some new and old works.

He will be joined on stage by Baltic Sea Philharmonic, actor Peter Serafinowicz along with his longtime collaborators Leo Abrahams and Peter Chilvers.

Speaking of the tour, Eno shared: "The album The Ship is an unusual piece in that it uses voice but doesn’t particularly rely on the song form."

"It’s an atmosphere with occasional characters drifting through it, characters lost in the vague space made by the music. There’s a sense of wartime in the background, and a sense of inevitability. 

"There is also a sense of scale which suits an orchestra, and a sense of many people working together. 

"I wanted an orchestra which played music the way I would like to play music: from the heart rather than just from the score. I wanted the players to be young and fresh and enthusiastic. 

"When I first saw the Baltic Sea Philharmonic I found all that…and then noticed they were named after a sea. That sealed it!"
