Steven Wilson

4 1/2 (cd/blu-ray/vinyl pre-orders)

An interim release between Hand. Cannot. Erase. and his next album, Steven Wilson's 4 comprises 6 tracks with a total running time of 37 minutes.

Four of the songs originated during the sessions for Hand. Cannot. Erase. and one from the recording sessions for The Raven That Refused To Sing. The final track is a new version of Don't Hate Me - a song recorded by Porcupine Tree in 1998 - based on a live recording made on the recent tour of Europe, with additional recording in the studio. The vocals on this new version are sung as a duet between Steven and Ninet Tayeb.

Adam Holzman, Nick Beggs, Guthrie Govan, Dave Kilminster, Craig Blundell, Marco Minnemann, Chad Wackerman and Theo Travis also contribute to 4 .

Available as CD, blu-ray and 180g vinyl versions in a beautiful die-cut sleeve photographed by Lasse Hoile and designed by Carl Glover.

The blu-ray (audio only) edition includes hi-res stereo, a 5.1 mix of the album, and a bonus 5.1 mix of the new version of Lazarus (recently included on the Transience vinyl compilation). The vinyl edition will include a download code for the album in a choice of FLAC or mp3.

Pre-order for 22nd January 2016 release. All orders through Burning Shed / Kscope come with an exclusive postcard.
