Gone to Earth is the third full-length solo album by David Sylvian, released in 1986. The album is a two-record set featuring one record of experimental rock songs with vocals and one consisting entirely of ambient instrumental tracks.

The album peaked at n. 4.

Listen free to David Sylvian – Gone To Earth (Taking The Veil, Laughter And Forgetting and more). Sylvian's career since leaving new wave art-rockers Japan has been an eclectic one to say the least, yielding successful collaborations with luminaries such as Can's Holger Czukay, Italy's Arturo Stalteri, trumpeter Jon Hassell, and, as here, prog guitarists Robert Fripp and Bill Nelson. Gone To Earth" is Sylvian's masterpiece of understatement, a quiet, contemplative recording of variable moods, environmental contrasts, and introspective moments. Connect to this site.
