Steven Wilson is in the studio right now to record his yet-to-be-named fourth solo LP. To give a sneak peek of what's to come, he has released a video of him and his band in the recording studio in London.

2013 was a productive year for British prog maestro Steven Wilson. He released his third solo record, the extremely proggy The Raven that Refused to Sing (and other stories) to wide acclaim, which was followed then by a world tour that culminated in a spectacular homecoming show at London’s Royal Albert Hall. Not content to rest on his laurels, Wilson has hopped back into the studio with the band he assembled for The Raven, and is gearing up for a February 2015 release of solo LP number four.
Get a behind-the-scenes look at the recording process in the video below, with brief appearances by frequent Wilson collaborator Lasse Hoile and the legendary music journalist Anil Prasad:

The Raven that Refused to Sing is out now via K-Scope.
