Steven Wilson Releases Futuristic Song ‘Personal Shopper,’ Announces New Album
Prog legend Steven Wilson has announced a new studio album, The Future Bites. The Porcupine Tree mastermind will released his sixth solo album on June 12, but you can hear its first single “Personal Shopper” right now.
“Personal Shopper” is a futuristic cut propelled forward by drum and bass. Clocking in at 10 minutes in length, Wilson expands on the electronic elements he’s flirted with in the past, fully diving into dance and neo-disco while somehow keeping a rock edge to the cut.
An official synopsis of the album reads, “Where 2017’s To the Bone confronted the emerging global issues of post truth and fake news, The Future Bites places the listener in a world of 21st century addictions. It’s a place where ongoing, very public experiments constantly take place into the affects of nascent technology on our lives. From out of control retail therapy, manipulative social media and the loss of individuality, The Future Bites is less a bleak vision of an approaching dystopia, more a curious reading of the here and now. “
