More Fred Again.. More Fred Again..

Hot off his epic performance alongside Skrillex and Four Tet as the closing performance for Coachella 2023, Fred Again.. is once again set to get the party started with a new album with Brian Eno on Four Tet's label, Text Records.

And it looks like fans won't have to wait with bated breath, as the record, titled Secret Life, will officially drop this Friday, May 5.

The COUNTRY RIDDIM-loving Four Tet (aka Kieran Hebden) announced the exciting news via Twitter, saying, “The album Secret Life by Fred Again and Brian Eno is coming out on my label Text Records on Friday.” 

He added that it would be “the most beautiful album of 2023" and that "there are vinyl and cd versions", while also sharing an image of the apparent album cover art.

The producers have also created a radio station devoted to Secret Life, which you can listen to when it kicks off here.

It's not the first time that Fred Gibson and Brian Eno have joined forces - Gibson previously co-produced Eno’s pair of 2014 albums, Someday World and High Life. They also lived in the same neighbourhood when Eno took the then-budding producer under his wing.

In a 2022 interview for Apple Music, Eno spoke of working with his longtime friend, who he began working with when Fred was just 16.

“When I first worked with Fred I could see he was brilliant,” Eno said. “It took me quite a while to think ‘Oh my gosh, this is really a new idea about how you can make music. So I learnt a lot from him.”

“What I noticed with Fred is that he would start something, and he wouldn’t turn it into a loop that’s going to run through the whole track.”

“He’d just have it running for a tiny little bit and then he’d put something else there! [His pieces] are very non-linear; he doesn’t clean everything off, so in every piece of recording, there’s a sort of context that comes with it as well. The sound has a history built into it.”
