Blackfield Feat. Steven Wilson Release “Lonely Soul” Video Taken From New Studio Album “Blackfield V”


Everything is broken
Everything is chaos

London - Ahead of the release of their new studio album V on March 17th through Kscope, Blackfield, the collaboration between Israeli songwriter and musician Aviv Geffen, and British musician and producer Steven Wilson, have revealed a new video for the song “Lonely Soul”, created by long time collaborator Lasse Hoile (www.lassehoile.com)

VIEW HERE:


Hoile explains his inspiration for the clip, “When I heard Lonely Soul for the first time I just felt it was like a scene from one of the many stories I’ve heard over the years, people’s experiences dealing with depression and anxiety. It became a personal story after a very good friend of mine had been suffering a great deal with this, and with their depression not being treated properly it developed into a form of self loathing. Although sad, this is an important subject I think we all need to be aware of and hopefully we will learn to reach out and help each other. The hardest part is often asking for help.”

Along with playing shows in Europe with Biffy Clyro last month, Aviv Geffen recently held his 6th Annual Rock Gala in Tel Aviv. The sold out show was a chance for him to celebrate his 20 years since the release of his 1997 album, Full Moon.

Aviv Geffen invited special guests to perform on the night including the UK’s Jake Bugg, fellow Israelis Dudu Tassa, Orit Shachaf and Avi Buffalo. The event also saw a rare collaboration between Geffen and Iranian dissident musician Shahin Najafi (http://www.shahinnajafimusic.com/about-shahin-najafi) in what was described in the New York Times as “an effort to prove that despite bitter enmity between their countries, ordinary people can find common ground. As they performed the rare Hebrew-Farsi fusion Thursday night, the standing-room-only audience of 6,000 gave a rousing applause.”

BLACKFIELD V – The album

The new studio album Blackfield V was written and recorded over a period of 18 months in both Israel and England and contains 13 linked songs that form a flowing 45 minute ocean themed song cycle. With the duo expertly handling vocals, guitars, and keyboards, they brought in Tomer Z from the Blackfield band on drums, Eran Mitelman on keys, and string arrangements were performed by the London Session Orchestra. Blackfield V is a powerful journey through catchy melodies, lush arrangements, and stunning production, with legendary producer / engineer Alan Parsons working on three of the album’s key tracks.

The pair makes for a formidable musical force; Geffen has worked with legendary producers Tony Visconti and Trevor Horn, has played live with U2 and Placebo, and is currently a judge on the Israeli TV show The Voice. Wilson, after a long tenure as the leader of the hugely influential band Porcupine Tree, has since embarked on a highly successful solo career, achieving 3 UK top 40 albums (the most recent also making the top 3 in Germany, and The Netherlands), and 4 Grammy nominations.

Steven Wilson Bids Farewell To Blackfield


blackfield
Bowing out: Wilson, right, with Geffen

Steven Wilson has announced his upcoming live appearances with Blackfield will be his farewell to the band.

He started out as an equal partner in the project alongside Aviv Geffen in 2001 – but due to his solo commitments he appeared only as a guest on last year’s Blackfield IV album. Now he’s confirmed he’ll take no further part in the band after their upcoming tour, which kicks off in London next week.

Wilson says: “Unfortunately, due to increasing activities with my solo work and other new projects, these be my final shows with Blackfield.

“For this reason the set list will draw mainly from the first two albums, which were the ones that myself and Aviv collaborated on most closely.

“Aviv will continue recording and touring as Blackfield with new collaborators – but for me this is going to be a ‘thank you and farewell’ so I would love to see you there.”

Tour dates

Feb 05: London Koko
Feb 06: Paris Le Trianon
Feb 07: Antwerp Trix
Feb 09: Amsterdam Paradiso
Feb 10: Berlin C Club
Feb 11: Krakow Studio Club
