Steven Wilson earns two Grammy noms; Porcupine Tree album due out in 2022

Groundbreaking musician/songwriter/producer Steven Wilson has been honored with two prestigious GRAMMY® Award nominations for his acclaimed sixth album, THE FUTURE BITES, available everywhere now HERE. The album earned nods for “Best Immersive Audio Album” and “Best Boxed Or Special Limited Edition Package,” marking Wilson’s fifth and sixth total career GRAMMY® nominations thus far.

THE FUTURE BITES is available now on all digital platforms, along with vinyl, CD, and a limited-edition deluxe box set that contains CDs of the album, an instrumental version of the album, bonus material (including six additional songs and several reworked versions of the album tracks), a cassette of demos, and a Blu-ray featuring videos and Wilson’s own 5.1 surround sound and Dolby Atmos versions of the album (marking THE FUTURE BITES as the first contemporary album to be mixed and released in Dolby Atmos).

Co-produced in London by Wilson with David Kosten (Bat For Lashes, Everything Everything), THE FUTURE BITES sees Wilson exploring contemporary addiction and the lasting effect of ever-increasing technology on our daily lives. The album marks his most inventive and far-reaching musical construction to date, spanning soaring acoustics, lush electronica, relentless bass-driven grooves, murky funk, and so much more, all linked through powerfully focused songcraft and this one-of-a-kind artist’s always unique creative vision.
