Steven Wilson - Announces New Album, Tour And New Track


Steven Wilson fans are in for a treat today! After many months of writing and recording, the band has finally announced the details of the new album, To The Bone, and a major European tour in early 2018. Also released today is the finished version of a track from the album, "Pariah", a song Steven Wilson wrote especially to be a duet with the vocalist Ninet Tayeb, who was also featured on the latest album, Hand. Cannot. Erase. and . Enjoy the music below as well as other details regarding the record.




Wilson shared: "My fifth record is in many ways inspired by the hugely ambitious progressive pop records that I loved in my youth (think Peter Gabriel's So, Kate Bush's Hounds of Love, Talk Talk's Colour of Spring and Tears for Fears' Seeds of Love). Lyrically, the album's eleven tracks veer from the paranoid chaos of the current era in which truth can apparently be a flexible notion, observations of the everyday lives of refugees, terrorists and religious fundamentalists, and a welcome shot of some of the most joyous wide-eyed escapism I've created in my career so far. Something for all the family!"




To The Bone is due to be released on 18th August but is available now to pre-order in a variety of formats, including a special deluxe hard back 120 page book edition, which includes an exclusive full length CD of demos and unused songs, and a one-sided 7 inch vinyl single of a bonus instrumental song from the album sessions. Neither of these will be available anywhere else.

I dunno the first half sounded post-rock-ish and then there was heavy part at the end. Just when I was getting used to his solo non-PT material with the last two albums and was expecting something in the same vein, he seems to have come up with a totally different sounding thing and I guess that was the cause of my disappointment.

SW is constantly evolving, so I wouldn't expect him to follow the same path many times. He does however, have a signature sound, and this song represents that. So, I'm pretty pleased. I have no idea what to expect though from the album in general though.

I kind of agree. SW seems like a guy who can get easily tired of doing songs in a similar vein after a while. I wouldn't call the song bad, but it isn't exactly what I was hoping for. I guess it could grow on me, but we'll see.

As if doing that in a song is either intelligent or original...

Also, this song is boring AF.
