It's 2 years ago today since the release of my last album Hand. Cannot. Erase., how time flies! The album was a major conceptual project involving the creation of a whole back story for the main character through the blog and the most elaborate deluxe edition to date. The album did very well for me, reaching the top 5 in Germany, The Netherlands and Finland, number 13 in the UK and number 38...

A short clip of legendary harmonica player Mark Feltham working on one of my new songs "To the Bone". I've loved Mark's playing ever since hearing his work on albums such as Talk Talk's "Colour of Spring" and "Spirit of Eden" and The The's "Mind Bomb", so it's a real thrill to have him playing on the new album. Filmed by Lasse Hoile.

I'm proud to present a lyric video for a song I wrote for the forthcoming Blackfield V album, also featuring Aviv Geffen, and Tomer Z on drums.

'From 44 to 48' is a song about growing older and letting go of dreams. The album is released across Europe this Friday. Even though I don't really write songs with specific projects in mind as soon as I wrote this one I knew it was for Blackfield.

Towards the end of last year I mixed the new album by my long term friend and partner in no-man, Tim Bowness, a really beautiful record.

Happy new year folks! A short clip of myself and the amazing Ninet Tayeb recording vocals for the song "Pariah" from the new album in progress, written especially for us to record as a duet. Co-producer / engineer Paul Stacey is also in the clip, filmed by Lasse Hoile earlier this week. More studio stuff soon!

Recording sessions for the new album started in London last week, with tracking of drums and bass. As you can see we're working hard but having a lot of fun!

Earlier this year I was very happy to be invited by RUSH to contribute to the 40th anniversary edition of their classic '2112' album, due for release in multiple formats (including a deluxe 3LP/2CD/DVD box set version) on 16th December. My band recorded a version of "The Twilight Zone", partly live at a soundcheck in Linz, Austria, but then with overdubs and final mix completed in the studio....

Very proud to see the release of a video for a track from the new Metallica album directed by a member of the "Steven Wilson family" Jess Cope, and it's really fantastic! Metallica invited Jess to do the video after seeing the animated films she created for my songs, especially The Raven That Refused to Sing, which apparently is a big favourite in the James Hetfield household (-:
