Steven Wilson / New album: To The Bone

Steven Wilson will release To The Bone, his fifth studio album, in August. It will be available across a number of formats including a five-disc deluxe hardcover book edition.

The album is Wilson’s first since 2015’s Hand.Cannot.Erase which was a both a critical and commercial success. One of the highlights of that album was the song Routine which featured the vocals of Israeli musician/actress Ninet Tayeb. On the new album she contributes once more, singing on two tracks, Pariah and Blank Tapes. 

A press release tells us that “Lyrically, the album’s eleven tracks veer from the paranoid chaos of the post-truth era and the creeping self-loathing of the technology age to steely fly-on-the-wall observations of the everyday lives of religious fundamentalists with a welcome shot or two of wide-eyed escapism.”. You can listen to Pariah, below.

The 11-track album runs for around 60 minutes and a bonus CD within the box set includes a further 55 minutes of demos and unused songs. Unsurprisingly,  there is a 5.1 surround mix of the album on the included blu-ray, alongside a hi-res stereo mix, an instrumental mix, two promo videos and ‘Ask Me Nicely – The Making of To The Bone’ – an 85 minute documentary shot by Lasse Hoile.

If you haven’t upgraded to blu-ray (why not!?) a DVD is also included which features the hi-res stereo mix, the 5.1 as DTS 24/96 and the two promo videos.

Finally, the deluxe book edition comes with a one-sided seven-inch single which featuers an instrumental track recorded during the album sessions. This is unique to the vinyl. The five-disc deluxe set is (for now) exclusive to Steven Wilson’s online store.

The 2LP edition of To The Bone will be half-speed mastered and pressed at 45RPM, so it should sound fantastic. The album will also be issued as a standalone blu-ray and of course a CD.

To The Bone will be released on 18 August 2017 by Wilson’s new label Caroline International.

For a limited time the SDE shop has SIGNED copies of this blu-ray. Order here.

Five-disc deluxe book edition from Steven’s online store is SOLD OUT.
