Steven Wilson: "I have a strong personality and I don’t need to hide it anymore"
Three singles, a “pop” record and an almost major label deal? It’s a brave new world for Steven Wilson with upcoming album To The Bone
Steven Wilson returns with a new album, a new label and the announcement of a 2018 European tour. Titled To The Bone, Wilson’s fifth solo record will emerge on August 18 on Caroline Records – home to Peter Gabriel, Iggy Pop and Underworld – and although it’s not a concept record there is a theme: the era of post-truth.
“Looking around at the world today, it’s hard not to feel some sense of disenchantment at everything that’s going on,” Wilson tells Prog. “Not just politics, but the way people are with each other – very rude and aggressive, intolerant. It seems like something’s gone terribly wrong.
