Steven Wilson, better known as the frontman for progressive rock act Porcupine Tree, has released two new music videos taken from his forthcoming solo album "Grace For Drowning." The album, which is the follow up to his 2008 solo debut "Insurgentes," which will see its North American release on September 27th through K-Scope Music. The record will contain two separate albums from Wilson packaged together. One album has been titled "Deform To Form A Star" while the second will carry the title of "Like Dust I Have Cleared From My Eye." Steven Wilson commented on "Grace For Drowning" by saying;
"Insurgentes was an important step for me into something new. This record takes that as a starting point, but it’s more experimental and more eclectic. For me the golden period for music was the late sixties and early seventies, when the album became the primary means of artistic expression, when musicians liberated themselves from the 3 minute pop song format, and started to draw on jazz and classical music especially, combining it with the spirit of psychedelia to create 'journeys in sound' I guess you could call them. So without being retro, my album is a kind of homage to that spirit. There’s everything from [Ennio] Morricone-esque film themes to choral music to piano ballads to a 23 minute progressive jazz–inspired piece. I’ve actually used a few jazz musicians this time, which is something I picked up from my work remixing the King Crimson records."
