Music For Installations is, well, a collection of music recorded by Brian Eno for use in his audio-visual installations from 1986 to the present and beyond. (He’s always been ahead of his time, even his own. To quote MGMT, “We’re always one step behind him/He’s Brian Eno.”) Out May 4 via Astralwerks, the collection (featuring new, rare and previously unreleased tracks) comes in three editions: a six-CD box with a 64-page book (with exhibition photographs and an Eno-penned essay); a limited-edition six-CD box with the 64-page book (complete with a Plexiglass cover) and a download card; and a nine-LP box with the 64-page book and download card … Panic!
