Steven Wilson releases stills from ‘The Raven That Refused To Sing’ video, to be released at the end of January0
Steven Wilson has posted nine stills on his new website from an upcoming full length animation video for the title track of his next record ‘The Raven That Refused To Sing (and other stories)‘. The video is directed by Jess Cope and Simon Cartwright, who previously worked with Storm Corrosion on the video for ‘Drag Ropes‘. The news item on Steven’s website mentions that the video is due for release later this month.
In our new video feature below, I take a look at the brand new Storm Corrosion physical editions on CD, Blu-ray and vinyl. You can buy the CD/Blu-ray here, and the single CD here. The vinyl edition is unfortunately sold out (I’m not sure if it will come back into stock, but I’ll let you know if it does!). You can subscribe to the StarsDie.com YouTube channel here.
There are very few artists, especially in contemporary music culture, who can survive the buildup and anticipation over an entire decade and release something of great stature and accomplishment. We first heard note of a project between Porcupine Tree frontman and solo artist Steven Wilson and Opeth leader Mikael Åkerfeldt around 2002, when SW had written a song intended for their collaboration as he was working on the monumental PT album In Absentia (which ended up recorded and left off his last solo record, as “Cut Ribbon”). However, it took this long for scheduling to align the two musical masterminds – as Storm Corrosion – to actually make a record… and it’s nothing like anyone would expect.
Here is the brand new video for Storm Corrosion’s ‘Drag Ropes’, directed by Jessica Cope! The video has been long in the making according to Steven Wilson, who posted a short update on Facebook announcing it’s release. So what are you waiting for? Watch the video below for your first taste of Steven Wilson & Mikael Akerfeldt’s Storm Corrosion! Feel free to share your opinions in the comments below, or on Facebook or Twitter.
An official website for Steven Wilson & Mikael Akerfeldt’s project ‘Storm Corrosion’ has been launched, and it currently has a biography, two photo galleries and pre-order links. There aren’t any audio samples yet, but it looks like we will be able to see a music video for ‘Drag Ropes’ soon, because one of the photo galleries contained six stills from the video, which I’ve posted here. Below, I’ve posted the full packshot for the CD/Blu-ray edition, which is featured on the ‘pre-order’ page on the new website.
