I suppose so no one can easily steal the jpeg image?  Anyway, here’s the “cover art video trailer reveal” for Steven Wilson’s upcoming Grace for Drowning album, due out in September.

For more about the album, I did a “here’s all the info we know thus far” recap a few weeks ago.

OSI #4 in Jan 2012 on Metal Blade

20th Jun 11 (Mon) 3 comments

Metal Blade Records founder Brian Slagel dropped info on the next O.S.I. record (their 4th).  It’ll hit us in January 2012 per this tweet.  O.S.I. is Kevin Moore (Chroma Key, ex-Dream Theater) and Jim Matheos (ex-Fates Warning)… they make some excellent drum-programmed twitchy, sample-driven ethereal prog (like a harder version of Chroma Key).  Gavin Harrison from Porcupine Tree drums on this one.  Mixing is happening now, based on prior reports.

Samples from their past three records:

The 4th album was originally slated for Fall 2010.  I can wait, but barely…

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).

Steven Wilson’s upcoming double album

7th May 11 (Sat) Leave a comment

From Porcupine Tree frontman Steven Wilson’s facebook page about his upcoming solo work…

The new solo album website will probably launch in early June now. The music is done, but we’re still working on film material and the deluxe edition. It’s presented as two 40-45 minute albums in the same package (which begs the question; when is a double album not a double album? When it’s 2 single albums issued together!) The album titles are Deform to Form a Star and Like Dust I Have Cleared From My Eye.

Good question…personally, I’d still call that a double album, but whatever… it’s just semantics.
