Brian Eno is reissuing four albums from the ’90s, and they’ll each come with a bonus disc of rare and previously unreleased music. Due out December 2 via All Saints Records, the reissues span 1992′s Nerve Net, 1992′s The Shutov Assembly, 1993′s Neroli and 1997′s The Drop. Each will also come with a 16-page booklet of photos, images and writing by Eno.

The more rock-leaning Nerve Net will include My Squelchy Life, a planned 1991 album that was never released. The Shutov Assembly, a tribute to Russian artist Sergei Shutov, will feature seven unreleased tracks from the same period as the material that eventually became the album. Neroli, a “mood” music piece titled after a sensual oil, will come with the previously unreleased, hour-long drone piece New Space MusicThe Drop, billed as “jazz from a vague, alien perspective,” will arrive along with nine rarities preivously available as a 1,000-run edition at a 2006 exhibit in Japan.

Check out the tracklists and album cover art below.
