SW New Year Update – New album to be performed live in it’s entirety, deluxe edition selling fast, more tour dates still to be announced!2
Steven Wilson has posted a new year update on his website, which contains more details about his plans and projects for 2013. His new studio album ‘The Raven That Refused To Sing (and other stories‘ will be released on 25th February, with a supporting tour beginning in the UK in March. The tour will then visit Europe, USA, Canada, Mexico and South America. Tour dates for South America are still to be announced, but you can find the full list of dates and ticket links over on Steven’s official website, here.
Fans of early psychedelic Porcupine Tree will be excited to hear that Steven will be adding one song from that era to the setlist for the upcoming tour. An additional piece of artwork by Hajo Mueller which depicts a raven was also included in the update, and you can see that below. The official cover art for the album was released a while back, and you can see it here.
Here’s a brand new photo gallery from Lasse Hoile of Steven Wilson’s recent recording sessions in LA for his third solo album. We’ve been treated to three video clips so far of the band recording different songs for the album, which you can see over on Steven’s official YouTube channel, here. The video titles have given us three track titles – ‘Luminol‘, ‘The Watchmaker‘, ‘The Holy Drinker‘ and ‘The Raven That Refused To Sing‘. Remember that Steven Wilson told us a few months ago that the record is centered around individual ghost stories. I suspect more will be revealed about this theme over the next few months!
This album will be a collection of ghost stories made into music. What I really want to do is as a hardcover book where are the stories, pictures and drawings relate to the songs, which are all about ghosts, but ghosts in a classical sense. When I say this I mean they are traditional ghosts, old, spirits and hauntings, not the Hollywood type ghost out of a closet that shouts “Boo” no, on the contrary, traditional ghost stories are almost Victorian – SW
Steven Wilson’s new live concert film and album ‘Get All You Deserve’ is the main focus of this month’s episode of the Kscope Podcast. The tracks ‘Postcard’, ‘Get All You Deserve’, ‘Index’ and the unreleased track ‘Luminol’ are featured in the podcast, along with an interview with Steven, where he discusses ‘Get All You Deserve’ and his plans for his next studio record, due out in 2013. He specifically mentions that he’s written seven tracks for the new album, ‘all quite long pieces’. You can listen to the podcast by using the SoundCloud player below, and you can subscribe on iTunes here.
In case you missed it when it was streamed early on MusicRadar.com, here is the full high definition version of ‘Luminol’ taken from Steven Wilson’s new DVD/Blu-ray ‘Get All You Deserve‘. The new high def audio visual set contains the complete concert on Blu-ray, DVD and the audio is spread across 2 CD’s. You can pre-order the set from Burning Shed, here. ‘Luminol’ will appear on Steven Wilson’s as of yet untitled third solo album, due for release early next year.
Steven Wilson has updated his Facebook page with more details regarding his third solo album, and follow up to 2011′s critically acclaimed ‘Grace for Drowning’. He intends to take both the concept and the packaging to the next level with the album, which is due to be released early next year. Recording for the album will take place in Los Angeles this summer, and Lasse Hoile will be present to record in studio footage, which will be uploaded to Steven’s newly launched YouTube channel. Another interesting thing to note is legendary sound engineer Alan Parsons will be overseeing the recording.
Hi folks – an update of sorts…. The writing for the next SW album is almost finished, and this time I’ve written it all for my live band to play, mostly pretty long pieces (including the piece we previewed on the recent tour “Luminol”). We will start recording in LA in September with Alan Parsons overseeing things. Alan, as I’m sure many of you know, was the engineer on Dark Side of the Moon, one of the best sounding records ever.
The new album should be out in early 2013, and conceptually and visually we are planning to take things to the next level with the packaging and live show too. Lasse is also going to be there to film so we plan to bring you some in the studio footage on the official SW YouTube channel.
