It's the first collaboration between Eno and Hyde, but in addition to both of them singing on the album, a handful of musicians also helped record the collection of nine songs that will be released on May 6, one of which is Coldplay drummer Will Champion. Even the album artwork was collaborative for both musicians. Eno created the artwork, while Hyde took the photo featured on the cover.
Describing the songs creations into a full reality, Eno admitted "a lot of the constructions on the album were deliberately irregular and awkward," and that he "had a big collection of beginnings sitting around waiting for something to galvanise them into life, to make them more than just experiments. That something turned out to be Karl Hyde.”
Besides the usual CD and digital release formats, Someday World will also be available as a special edition two-disc CD including four bonus songs, as well as the Double Gatefold vinyl version on Warp Records. Describing the process of recording with Eno, Hyde commented that it felt "a bit like being nine years old again…these unlikely patterns start to happen."
