Here’s how it works – start listening to the album using your format of choice and follow the hashtag #timstwitterlisteningparty on Twitter – I will be sharing my own thoughts and insights into the making of the album throughout and trying to answer as many questions in real time as I can. Make sure to also follow my Twitter to make sure you catch all of my tweets.”
Elsewhere in Steven Wilson news, the influential musician and producer recently announced his new album The Future Bites will be released through Caroline International on 12 June.
The Future Bites is described as “an exploration of how the human brain has evolved in the Internet era. As well as being Wilson’s sixth album, The Future Bites is also an online portal to a world of high concept design custom built for the ultra-modern consumer.”
Where Wilson’s widely-acclaimed To The Bone (2017) confronted the emerging global issues of post truth and fake news, The Future Bites places the listener in a world of 21st century addictions. It’s a place where on-going, very public experiments constantly take place into the affects of nascent technology on our lives. From out of control retail therapy, manipulative social media and the loss of individuality, The Future Bites is less a bleak vision of an approaching dystopia, more a curious reading of the here and now.
The album was recorded in London and co-produced by David Kosten (Bat For Lashes, Everything Everything) and Steven Wilson.
