Published Feb 06, 2020Radiohead guitarist Ed O'Brien has been hinting at his debut solo album as EOB, and now full details have arrived. The record is titled Earth, and it's due out April 17.

As previously revealed, it also features additional vocals by Portishead's Adrian Utley on two songs and vocals by Laura Marling on "Cloak of the Night."
"I wanted to make a record from the heart," O'Brien said in a statement. "I wanted to make something direct. I wanted to talk about love, your family in the immediate and the wider sense, where we are on the planet, the bigger picture, life and death. I wanted to make a big hearted, warm and colourful album… something hopeful and full of love."
In addition to previously shared song "Brasil," O'Brien has now unveiled album opener "Shangri-La." Listen to that below, where you'll also find the record's tracklist.
