Happy new year everyone! Thanks for the love and support you brought to my music in 2013, I can’t remember having a better response to an album / tour, and I’ve been doing this a long time, so that means a lot (-:
Usually at this time of year I like to post something of an update regarding what’s coming up. Last year there was a lot to announce with the imminent release of the album and touring plans, but this year will be somewhat quieter while I concentrate on developing ideas and material for the next album, which I plan to record with my band in the Summer.
In the meantime there are a few reissues planned, including a compiled reissue of the Cover Version singles, a CD box set collecting various out of print Bass Communion titles, plus several more classic album stereo / 5.1 remixes, including the next in the series by XTC, Jethro Tull, and Yes. Unfortunately contractual issues have so far made a hoped for 10th anniversary edition remaster collecting all the music from Porcupine Tree’s “In Absentia” sessions not possible – hopefully that situation will change.
In terms of public appearances I will be playing a few shows with Aviv as part of Blackfield, a short run in European in February, you can find more information and ticket links Blackfield’s official website, here.
Of course all developments will be announced here and on the official Steven Wilson Facebook page first. All that is left for me to do is wish you the very best for 2014!
