Secrets of the Beehive is a solo album by British singer-songwriter David Sylvian and was released in 1987. Reportedly written in one sitting over a couple of weeks Secrets was his most intimate to date and used more acoustic instruments than ever before. By many regarded as his finest solo work. Produced by Steve Nye and David Sylvian, the album features Ryuichi Sakamoto, David Torn, Mark Isham and Steve Jansen among others. The album peaked at in the UK album chart.

Streamlining the muted, organic atmospheres of the previous Gone to Earth to forge a more cohesive listening experience, Secrets of the Beehive is arguably David Sylvian's most accessible record, a delicate, jazz-inflected work boasting elegant string arrangements courtesy of Ryuichi Sakamoto. And also in 1987, David Sylvian recorded and released his third solo album, the melancholic, acoustic and atmospheric Secrets of the Beehive, my favorite in his excellent catalog of albums. David Sylvian went through a period of soul searching in the mid-1980s after leaving the band Japan and releasing a few solo albums. Sylvian said of that period: This search led me to look into Gurdjieffs teachings, Sufism, Gnostic Christianity and Buddhism. At some point or another all of the above held me captivated for a period of time. Songs in album David Sylvian - Secrets Of The Beehive 1987. David Sylvian - September.
