Steven Wilson Releases New Song “What Life Brings”
London-based singer-songwriter Steven Wilson released a new song “What Life Brings” in September 19, 2023.
The song is taken from his upcoming seventh studio album “The Harmony Codex”, following “Rock Bottom”.
The track was written and produced by Steven Wilson. The accompanying music video was directed by Charlie Di Placido.
The new album is set to be released on September 29, 2023. It is his first album in two years since the 2021 album “The Future Bites”.
The album is based on his book of the same name and comprises 10-track.
Steven Wilson told UNDER THE RADAR MAGAZINE about the album in an interview, “A lot of the songs developed from messing about with analog synthesizers, with all their imperfections, all of the idiosyncrasies and unexpected things that they do. And I mean, if I could add one more thing to the equation: It’s the first time I think I’ve made a record without having any clear agenda at the beginning. And I say that because when I was doing things like Insurgentes, I knew, okay, I’m going to make my post-punk shoegaze record.”
- He continued, “When I started writing this particular record, I had nothing. I had no agenda. I just sat down and started making music for the sake and for the pleasure of experimenting with sound, and experimenting with songs in the context of experimental sound. There are no records that I can point to and say, “That was a reference point. That was a big influence.” And that’s not to say that you won’t hear influences. Of course you will, because they’re in my DNA. But I’m not consciously influenced by anything on this record.”
