Steven Wilson – Grace for Drowning (2011)
Update 8/24: there’s a new video for the song “Track One” with the image below, as well as pre-order information at THIS BLOG.
After some news leaking slowly, Porcupine Tree/No-Man/Blackfield frontman Steven Wilson’s next solo album finally has a name… Grace For Drowning. It also has a trailer…
Recapping the news from prior posts:
- it’ll be two 40-45 minute albums in the same package… due “Autumn 2011” (September-ish)
- album names: Deform to Form a Star and Like Dust I Have Cleared From My Eye
- pretty organic feel, mostly inspired by the darker end of vintage progressive music and some… movie soundtrack stuff (Morricone especially)
- the usual array of excellent SW options: double-vinyl release, 5.1 surround sound, hard back book edition, CD, digital…
- Update 7/19: free download… 9-minute full-track by signing up for the mailing list at http://www.gracefordrowning.com/
Stay up with his Facebook page and http://www.gracefordrowning.com/ for the scoop as it develops. Steven just finished up his tour with Blackfield, and also in the works… Storm Corrosion with Opeth’s Mikael Akerfeldt (likely a 2012 release).
