Details have emerged for Steven Wilson’s Bass Communion project’s new album.

It’s titled Sisters Oregon and will be the first new music by Wilson’s ambient/drone/noise project in six years and will feature 26-minutes of music.

A statement on the album, which will launch on 10-inch vinyl by Drone Records, reads: “The four parts are filled with sonorous drone expanses, tiny microsounds, deep bass eruptions and sudden breaks, ranging from an otherwordly subtleness to a most spacious finale, reaching a transcendental beauty of the highest degree.

“On almost every Bass Communion release the source material chosen is unique within the discography, in this case recordings of a boy’s choir made at Air Studio in late 2014 during the sessions for Wilson’s album Hand. Cannot. Erase.”

Pre-orders for the vinyl are now open, with the sleeve artwork created by Carl Glover. First edition copies are limited to just 500. It’s expected to ship in mid-late October.
