Editors’ Notes Nearly 50 years into his career, Brian Eno is still finding ground to cover. Inspired by a fascination with the Titanic and what he calls humankind’s back-and-forth between “hubris and paranoia,” The Ship blends the elusive majesty of Eno’s pioneering ambient music with his boyish, chant-like vocals and spoken-word interludes for a journey that shifts mercurially from quiet and optimistic to threatening and discordant, ending with a cover of the Velvet Underground’s “I’m Set Free” so gorgeously direct you can almost see the clouds parting.
