Steven Wilson has teased that there will be a "major announcement" regarding his next album very soon, and because we all know that announcements need trailers, he's released a cool 30s clip of music with the words "Coming Soon": https://twitter.com/StevenWilsonHQ/status/856555890341806080

Always exciting to hear new music from this guy so I'm anxiously awaiting the announcement...

But sadly the clip is complete rubbish, I think he likes to wind us up by teasing with one of the (hopefully) worst bits of the album!

The song "Pariah" has been released on YouTube:



Objectively, my first impression is that it's nothing particularly new from Wilson, and all of the beats in the song seem a bit obvious in the context of his other work...

...but this is so damn beautiful I don't care. I'm a sucker for Wilson's music cool cool cool And Ninet Tayeb is awesome in this too smiley

More info just appeared on his facebook page

Quote:
After many months of writing and recording, Iím pleased to finally announce details of my new album To The Bone, and a major European tour in early 2018 which includes a return to many of my favourite venues, including Londonís prestigious Royal Albert Hall. For my North and South American fans, expect to see further tour news soon.

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.

My fifth record is in many ways inspired by the hugely ambitious progressive pop records that I loved in my youth (think Peter Gabrielís So, Kate Bushís Hounds of Love, Talk Talkís Colour of Spring and Tears for Fearsí Seeds of Love). Lyrically, the albumís 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 Iíve created in my career so far. Something for all the family!

Late arrival to the party.
Just got the album this week and can't stop playing it.

I've seen some reviews where prog devotees sniff dismissively at some of the poppier tunes on the album ó but I think they're catchy, and I have been enjoying the album from beginning to end.
And I don't think those tunes are as much of a departure as some reviewers make it out to be, when I consider Wilson's output with No-Man which I feel treaded into pop territory from time to time.
