Harrison's explanation of the album:

No-man frontman Tim Bowness has begun recording the follow up to 2014's Abandoned Dancehall Dreams. The album features Tim's live band, a number of guest musicians including Anna Phoebe, Peter Hammill, and finally Porcupine Tree's Colin Edwin.
Tim briefly described the direction of the album:

A logical step forward with some surprises, I hope. It’s been really exciting working with the band on most of the pieces and getting some special contributions from the likes of Anna Phoebe, Peter Hammill and Andrew Keeling.”
The album is expected to be released in the late summer.
