Released in August 2022, Butterfly Mind has been Tim Bowness’s most successful album in terms of chart positions and reviews. To celebrate, an official video has been created for We Feel (a fan favourite taken from the release). Watch it now here: https://youtu.be/gr1pXHBtzVI
Featuring the powerhouse rhythm section of Richard Jupp (Elbow) on drums and Nick Beggs on Chapman Stick, the track boasts superb performances from Jethro Tull’s Ian Anderson, Peter Hammill and US musician Devon Dunaway.
David K Jones’ enigmatic visuals perfectly encapsulate the sense of paranoia and tension evoked by the lyrics.
Produced and written by Tim Bowness and Brian Hulse. Mixed and mastered by Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree).
