Originally released in 1981, the LP was remastered in 2009 for this expanded version, with new tracks, ambient edits and outtakes.
My Life In The Bush of Ghosts features Eno’s drum machine noodling merging with Byrne-fuelled weirdo disco, alongside found sounds and samples from Africa and the Middle East, including Lebanese vocals, gospel preacher incantations and filtered cosmic chants.
The album also features Larry Levan and Daniele Baldelli dance floor favourite ‘The Jezebel Spirit’.
