The Gift feat. Brian Eno – “Love Without Violins” [Video]

If you get Brian Eno to work on your album I would say you are doing quite well. The Gift have done just that and return with a new single, “Love Without Violins,” featuring Eno, who co-wrote, produced and sings on the track.
The single offers the first taste of The Gift’s newly developed experimental sound with Eno. And, with a new album in the pipeline for next spring, they’re set to be heard in 2017.
