Earth is an album of rediscovery and adventure by Radioheads Ed OBrien, being released under the moniker EOB. Written and recorded over five years during any possible break from the making and touring of Radioheads A Moon Shaped Pool, the album deftly veers from moments of delicate folk to euphoric house, its songs seamlessly pinned together by unswerving melodic hooks and candid lyricism. A spirit of collaboration runs through 'Earth' from the production team of Flood, Catherine Marks, Alan Moulder and Adam Cecil Bartlett to the extraordinary musicians OBrien assembled to bring these tracks to life; bassist Nathan East, drummers Omar Hakim and Glenn Kotche, and The Invisibles multi-instrumentalist leader David Okumu. Portisheads Adrian Utley appears on two tracks, whilst Laura Marling duets with OBrien on stirring closer Cloak of The Night. But every group of collaborators needs a leader, and Earth is all OBriens vision. I wanted to make a record from the heart, he says. 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 colorful album something hopeful and full of love. Featuring the singles Shangri-La, which sways between syncopated beats and twisted rock, and Brasil, a track that morphs from a tender opening into a heightened-state rhythmic banger, Earth marks a new beginning for Ed OBrien.
