Porcupine Tree Frontman Steven Wilson Releasing New Album

12/06/2012
.
Porcupine Tree frontman Steven Wilson has set a February 25, 2013 release date for his new solo album, The Raven that Refused to Sing (and Other Stories). We were sent these details:

More than merely a collection of songs, Wilson's third solo album is an audio experiment in time travel. Recorded in Los Angeles, in 2012, the six song set channels an early 70's aesthetic from the dawn of progressive rock and jazz fusion. The result is a sonic adventure through dynamic suites and rhythmic complexities.

Recorded using most vintage gear, and inspired by stories of the supernatural, The Raven that Refused to Sing (and other stories) also features several notable nods to 'the age of the album,' Wilson's lush arrangements, Alan Parsons engineering and the appearance of the legendary Mellotron used to record King Crimson's In the Court of the Crimson King.

The limited 4-disc deluxe edition (Blu-ray, DVD and 2CD) is packaged in an impressive 128-page hardback book containing lyrics, short stories by Wilson, and haunting images and illustrations by Hajo Mueller. Standard double vinyl, CD and Blu-Ray editions will also be available.

To promote the release, Steven Wilson will tour Europe in March and North America in April, with additional dates to follow.

Following the release of his solo effort Grace For Drowning, Steven embarked on his first ever solo tour, assembling a virtuoso band, featuring Marco Minnemann (drums), Nick Beggs (bass), Theo Travis (flute and sax), Adam Holzman (keys) and Niko Tsonev (guitars), to accompany him. With the addition of Guthrie Govan (guitar) and legendary producer / engineer Alan Parsons, Wilson emerges as the modern torch-barer of his influences and illuminates a path to music's heralded past.

Track listing:
1. Luminol (12.10)
2. Drive Home (7.37)
3. The Holy Drinker (10.13)
4. The Pin Drop (5.03)
5. The Watchmaker (11.43)
6. The Raven that Refused to Sing (7.57)
