(Prog) Richard Barbieri has announced that he'll release his third solo album early next year. It will be entitled "Planets + Persona," and is set to hit stores on March 3 via Kscope.

Barbieri is known for his work with Japan and Porcupine Tree, Barbieri's follow-up to 2008's Stranger Inside is said to be "his most sonically expansive work to date."

A statement on the album continues: "Vintage analogue synthesisers combine with acoustic performances and jazz elements. Twisted voices are always present, though not in a language we can recognise. Barbieri skilfully utilises the talents of a pan-European core of musicians to produce an album that marries synthesised sounds with organic instrumentation to conjure up vivid, colourful and allusive soundscapes.

"It's a skilful commingling of texture and tone, mood and musicality." To mark the announcement, Barbieri has also issued a teaser video for the record, featuring snippets of all seven tracks. Listen to them here.
