While I’m working on writing for my next album, here’s an update on some collaboration work that will be emerging over the next few months.
Firstly, I contributed guitars, mellotron and synthesiser to ex Mansun frontman Paul Draper’s track ‘No Ideas’, which appears on his debut solo release ‘EP ONE’. Paul Draper has had an extended hiatus following the break-up of Mansun 13 years ago. I was a big fan of the band, especially the album “Six” so I’m happy that Paul has finally responded to considerable fan encouragement to return with some new music, and happy to have contributed. His EP is released via Kscope on 10th June. http://smarturl.it/PDEPONE
In my ongoing work remixing classic albums, a number were completed over the last 18 months or so. These include XTC “Skylarking”, Tears for Fears “The Seeds of Love”, Jethro Tull “Stand Up” and Yes “Tales from Topographic Oceans”. All of these are likely to be issued between September-November this year, except for Tears For Fears which will probably be next year. Also finally due in October are the last of my King Crimson remixes completed some years ago, “Beat”, and “Three of a Perfect Pair”.
More details on all my remixing activities can be found on the Steven Wilson Remixes Facebook page.
