Steven Wilson’s Solo Album, Show
Porcupine Tree mainman Steve Wilson has a new solo album and gig on the way.
The album is called Grace For Drowning, and is released by KScope on September 26. It’s the follow-to 2009’s Insurgentes. Says Wilson:
“Insurgentes was an important step for me into something new. This record takes that as a starting point, but it’s more experimental and more eclectic. For me the golden period for music was the late 60s and early 70s, when the album became the primary means of artistic expression, when musicians liberated themselves from the three-minute pop song format, and started to draw on jazz and classical music especially, combining it with the spirit of psychedelia to create ‘journeys in sound’ I guess you could call them. So without being retro, my album is a kind of homage to that spirit.”
Wilson will also be playing a date in London. It’s on Monday, October 31 at the Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London.
