British musician/producer Steven Wilson has announced a new album, The Harmony Codex, and shared its first single, “Economies of Scale,” via a music video. Today we have also posted part one of our two-part interview with Wilson about the album. Read the interview, which was conducted by Stephen Humphries, here.

The Harmony Codex is due out September 29 via Spinefarm. A deluxe edition includes remixes/reimaginings by Interpol, Manic Street Preachers, Tears for Fears’ Roland Orzabal, and others. Charlie Di Placido directed the “Economies of Scale” video. Watch it below, followed by the album’s tracklist and cover artwork.

The album features Ninet Tayeb, Craig Blundell, Adam Holzman, Jack Dangers (Meat Beat Manifesto), and Sam Fogarino (Interpol).

In 2022 Wilson released his memoir, Limited Edition of One, and The Harmony Codex is based on a short story featured in that book.

“I’ve always seen my music in cinematic terms,” Wilson says in our new interview with him. “But something about this record has taken that aspect, I think, to another level. Maybe it’s the fact it was based on the short story. Maybe it’s the fact that every song seems distinctly different to every other song, and it has its own sort of internal musical world and musical vocabulary, and yet it still seems to form a cohesive whole, a cohesive journey.”
