John Wesley has released a lyric video for his track To Outrun The Light.

It’s lifted from the Fish and Porcupine Tree collaborator’s forthcoming album, A Way You’ll Never Be, which is due out on October 7. Last month he also launched track By The Light Of A Sun from the follow-up to 2014’s Disconnect. Listen to both songs below.

Wesley says of his latest song: “The lyrics try and touch upon that moment when you know your life is going to change forever and there is nothing you can do about it. You begin to question your own identity.

“You look back on all the years invested and fear that everything you thought you knew, was wrong to begin with. You wonder if perhaps, you have outrun the light.”

The album will be available in Digipak CD, 2LP, CD and digital download. The album can be pre-ordered on iTunes and Amazon. The first 170 vinyl pre-orders from Burning Shed will also include a signed postcard.

Wesley will tour North America with Marillion and Steven Wilson throughout October and November.
