PostSubject: Steven Wilson's next solo album to be engineered by Alan Parsons   Wed Jul 18, 2012 8:42 pm

*correction*

Steven announced today that most of the material has been written. They will begin recording at the beginning of September here in Los Angeles and producing legend Alan Parsons will be in the engineer's chair.

Makes sense for Wilson to work with the man behind the knobs for Dark Side Of The Moon.

Here's the post from his facebook page:

HI folks - an update of sorts.... The writing for the next SW album is almost finished, and this time I've written it all for my live band to play, mostly pretty long pieces (including the piece we previewed on the recent tour "Luminol"). We will start recording in LA in September with Alan Parsons overseeing things. Alan, as I'm sure many of you know, was the engineer on Dark Side of the Moon, one of the best sounding records ever. The new album should be out in early 2013, and conceptually and visually we are planning to take things to the next level with the packaging and live show too. Lasse is also going to be there to film so we plan to bring you some in the studio footage on the official SW YouTube channel.

Sounds pretty cool.

I had a clip of the new song, Luminol, saved from a while back. But it appears the video's been deleted. Crying or Very sad

*correction* - Alan Parsons has been hired to engineer the album. Wilson stated this on Twitter:

"I figured if you are going to have an engineer you may as well have the guy that engineered the best sounding rock album ever made."


Having an engineer of Parsons' stature behind the desk allows him to forget about the technical aspects of the recording and just focus on his own parts. He has expressed how important capturing the live feel of this touring band is, so I'm assuming he will want to record as much of this album "live in the studio" as possible, which would make it impossible for him to engineer at the same time.

Smart move - I bet it will sound great!
