More information: Compiled onto one CD for the first time, this 12 track set comprises 6 Steven Wilson originals and 6 covers of songs by Alanis Morissette, Abba, The Cure, Momus, Prince and Donovan, released on the rare Cover Version singles series between 2003-2010.
In March 2003 Steven Wilson released Cover Version, a 2 track CD single which was limited to 3,000 copies. Despite an illustrious career fronting a number of acts, including Porcupine Tree and No-Man, and recording under various guises (IEM, Bass Communion), this was the first piece to be released under his own name.
This proved to be the first of a series of Cover Version releases as over the next few years he released a further five singles. The artists that he covered reflect the diverse range of music that influences him, taking in tracks by Alanis Morissette, Abba, The Cure, Momus, Prince and Donovan.
These tracks provide a fascinating insight into both Wilson's musical taste and his development as a solo artist.
