Prog/art-rock guru Tim Bowness has unveiled a new track titled ‘Great Electric Teenage Dream’, along with its accompanying video which you can watch below.
‘Great Electric Teenage Dream’ is taken from Tim Bowness’ upcoming record ‘Stupid Things that Mean the World’, due July 17th on InsideOut.
Regarding the song, Tim Bowness said “it was partly rooted in some powerful drum patterns Pat Mastelotto recorded in 2013, but most of the song came together in one late night live session at NAM Studios in February this year. Subsequently, Colin Edwin, Andrew Booker and Bruce Soord made some additions that helped build the tension in the song further. ”
On this new album, Bowness is joined by No-Man’s live band (Stephen Bennett, Michael Bearpark, Andrew Booker) along with Colin Edwin (Porcupine Tree). The record was mixed by The Pineapple Thief’s frontman Bruce Soord, who also played some guitar parts on the album. In addition to Soord, guest musicians include Peter Hammil, Pat Mastelotto, David Rhodes, Phil Manzanera, Anna Phoebe and Rhys Marsh.
Tim Bowness is primarily known for his work with Steven Wilson in the duo No-Man, as well as being a core member of Henry Fool and Memories of Machines. Stupid Things that Mean the World marks his third solo album after My Hotel Year in 2004 and the critically acclaimed Abandoned Dancehall Dreams last year.
