Brian Eno has shared a new video for a single called 'Garden Of Stars'.

The star released his latest studio album last month, called FOREVERANDEVERNOMORE,

The new video is for a single called Garden Of Stars.

The song has been produced by Brian alongside Nick Robertson.

Eno has worked with Robertson for many years, and he also created the artwork for the album.

Watch the video below:

Brian said: “Imagine being huge enough to have our Universe as a plaything, and to watch in fascination as that Universe is born, flourishes and finally snuffs itself out...or alternately divides into a million parallel selves....”

Nick added: “The Garden of Stars video imagines the creation of stars as occurring in a garden where exotic new cross breeds of flowers are created, and populate the heavens. Each one a unique variation on a universal blueprint.”

Brian explained: “I started with all of these tracks creating a sonic world, making a world that seemed interesting to me and then I picked up a microphone and started singing, so there is no rhythm in most of the songs and very few chord changes....

"I thought there should be other elements just like the wind and the rain so they (the vocals) are not synchronised necessarily, they just happen... most of the time it was a pretty straightforward and immediate approach to what happened when I plugged the mic in, I got a nice sound and suddenly I was a different person in a different place, thinking I’ll have an adventure.”
