Tim Bowness releases new video for “The Great Electric Teenage Dream”

Tim Bowness releases video for “The Great Electric Teenage Dream” from his upcoming album

Tim Bowness, coming off a release just last year, is back with a new album called ‘Stupid Things That Mean The World’, for release on July 17th, 2015.  The first single is for the track “The Great Electric Teenage Dream.”

Tim had this to say about the track: “This is the opening track from Stupid Things That Mean The World, though it was one of the last pieces to be completed for the album.  It’s 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.  Stephen Bennett – who I co-wrote the song with – created the video, which has a nice ‘retro-future’ theme running through it that complements some of the ideas in the lyric.”

The album, produced by Bowness and mixed by The Pineapple Thief’s Bruce Soord (who also adds some choice guitar parts), ‘Stupid Things That Mean The World’ features a core of Bowness along with members of the No-Man live band (Stephen Bennett, Michael Bearpark, Andrew Booker) and Colin Edwin (Porcupine Tree), augmented by contributions from Peter Hammill, Phil Manzanera, Pat Mastelotto (King Crimson), Anna Phoebe, David Rhodes (Peter Gabriel, Kate Bush, Scott Walker), and Rhys Marsh. As on Abandoned Dancehall Dreams, Classical composer Andrew Keeling, best known for his work with The Hilliard Ensemble, Evelyn Glennie and Robert Fripp, provides striking string arrangements. The album was mastered by The Pineapple Thief’s Steve Kitch.” The album can be preordered here: https://www.burningshed.com/store/noman/
