The Ship is the twenty-seventh solo studio album by English musician Brian Eno, released on 29 April 2016 on Warp Records. The album is Eno's first solo album to contain vocals since 2005's Another Day on Earth. Brian Eno has said the title is a reference to the sinking of Titanic, which he has called "the apex of human technical power, set to be man's greatest triumph over nature". The album was originally conceived as a multi-channel sound installation, when Eno discovered that he could sing in a low C: "As you get older, you know, your voice drops, so you sort of gain a semi-tone at the bottom and lose about six at the top every year. That's what's happened to me. So I've suddenly got this new, low voice I can sing with, and I just started singing with that piece. And, so it was the first time I thought, 'Oh, what about making a song that you could walk around inside?'" - Brian Eno

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
