Watch: Brian Eno And Michael Stipe On ‘The Colbert Report’

    Brian Eno has released two collaborative albums within the last 12 months—Small Craft on a Milk Sea and Drums Between the Bells—and he has a new EP out with Rick Holland titled Panic of Looking, which he chose to promote by appearing on Stephen Colbert’s show last night. The encounter between the pair is as amusing and insightful as you’d expect, with Eno talking about his 77 Million Paintings project, how he came up with Music for Airports, and his a cappella singing group. The discussion of the latter prompted Colbert to bring out Michael Stipe so the trio could perform a bizarro world version of Bill Withers’ “Lean on Me.” Check out both clips below.
