Ahead of the release of his much-anticipated album To The Bone, Steven Wilson has partnered with All Music Guide to premiere the new song “Refuge.”
“Refuge” is a contemplative song, the mood and tempo of which escalates and changes shape as the track builds.
To the Bone is out August 18 via Caroline. Pre-orders are live here.
To the Bone is a gloriously dynamic modernist pop record as imagined by the UK’s biggest underground artist. Wilson continues to surprise and thrill fans, both long-term and new, with his unpredictable yet impactful shift in musical direction.
Early support for Wilson, described by Planet Rock as “one of the most prolific and unrivalled artists of our time,” To the Bone comes from a wide variety of media sources, ranging from Billboard to Relix to Music Connection to Blurt to Metal Sucks. The UK press has espoused the virtues of To the Bone, with Mojo awarding it a four-star review, noting the album “keeps its pop and prog influences in a near perfect balance,” while Uncut labeled it “a lush and ambitious piece of progressive pop.” Q enthused that To the Bone is “wonderfully executed… pop brilliance” and Prog labeled it “fervent and meticulous.”
Wilson will perform two shows at the storied Royal Albert Hall, with one currently sold out. All current dates are here.
