Brian Eno has said that the music industry is currently an "exciting mess".

The Coldplay, U2 and David Byrne producer told The Guardian that he has tried different methods of releasing music to experiment in the changing business.

Eno said: "When I finish something I want it out that day. Pop music is like the daily paper. Its got to be there then, not six months later.

"So [David Byrne and I] decided to release on our websites first, then put it on the commercial websites, then as a CD, then with different packaging.

"It's just trying to see what works. The business is an exciting mess at the moment."

Byrne is currently touring the UK with 'The Songs of David Byrne & Brian Eno'.
