More information: The expanded, 2CD Tour Edition of the album features five bonus acoustic tracks, recorded solo by Bruce Soord, a format that is favoured by fans as they highlight his touching vocals and brings the spirit of his live solo show to the record.
Your Wilderness is the band’s follow-up to 2014’s ‘Magnolia’, and features a range of guest musicians – including King Crimson drummer Gavin Harrison.
He says: “Since Magnolia, the most eye-catching change is obviously having Gavin Harrison contribute drums throughout the album. This has not only redefined our sound but also redefined how we approached the songs as a band. Gavin's drumming is technically brilliant but also incredibly musical, and it inspired all of us to raise our game.”
Soord reports he’s rediscovered his “progressive roots in terms of song-writing and arrangement” and adds: “We were lucky enough to have John Helliwell from Supertramp contribute some beautiful clarinet parts and Caravan’s Geoffrey Richardson provided a string quartet.
“We were also joined by a lovely four-piece choir and to cap it all off, my friend Darran Charles from Godsticks added some jaw-dropping guitar playing.”
He continues: “You've never heard a The Pineapple Thief album like this one. I am convinced people will love this record as much as we do.”
