Steven Wilson Reveals Video For The Raven That Refused To Sing
Steven Wilson has released an animated video for his track The Raven That Refused To Sing. View it below.
The promo is based on artwork by Hajo Mueller, who created the album visuals and illustrations for the hardback book that accompanies limited editions of the record.
The six-track record explores themes of the supernatural and how such ideas are expressed. Wilson recently told Prog: “It’s less about what you see and more about what you imagine. I love those stories by Edgar Allan Poe and Arthur Machen. They’re macabre fairy tales. They have much more atmosphere than what we see in Hollywood horror cinema. It’s about a creeping sense of dread rather than something more explicit.
“I can look at it and say it’s a strong piece of work, possibly my best to date. I always rely on feedback to understand where in my canon the record sits. I hope this one sits very near the top, or even at the top.”
The Raven That Refused To Sing (And Other Stories) is released on February 25.
Wilson’s touring band is made up of the musicians who recorded the album: Guthrie Govan, Nick Beggs, Marco Minnemann, Adam Holzman and Theo Travis. Drummer Minnemann is unable to appear on the American leg of the tour and will be replaced by former Frank Zappa sticksman Chad Wackerman.
