Last week, Brian Eno announced he’d be reissuing four albums from the ’90s, each with a companion disc of rare and previously unreleased music. The expanded reissues — of 1992′s Nerve Net, 1992′s The Shutov Assembly, 1993′s Neroli and 1997′s The Drop— are on the way December 2 via All Saints Records. Now, the label has shared one of the unreleased tracks, “Prague,” a languid, keyboard-based tone painting recorded around the same time as the ambient pieces that would become The Shutov Assembly. Listen to that below, along with “Fractal Zoom,” the fidgety synth-pop opening track from the rock-inclined, syncopation-obsessed Nerve Net. It should surprise no devotee of Eno that the artsy instrumental flits by in a radio-friendly less than three minutes, while the ostensible rock’n’roll song floats toward a spacey six and a half.
