Tim Bowness recently released his latest solo album ‘Abandoned Dancehall Dreams’ to much critical acclaim, including hitting the UK Rock Album Chart at #18. The 2 disc version of the album features several remixes, including Singing For You, which is the UXB mix of the track Dancing For You. A suitably evocative UXB video for the song has now been made available and can be viewed here:

Tim Bowness will also be joining Henry Fool for their appearance at Resonance Festival in London this Saturday 2nd August 2014, where they will perform tracks from the solo album plus Henry Fool and No-Man material. Theo Travis (Steven Wilson, Robert Fripp, The Tangent) will also be joining them as a special guest for the show.

Prog Magazine proclaimed Abandoned Dancehall Dreams to be ‘arch art-progger Bowness’s masterpiece…and a contender as the triumph of 2014’ and also nominated them for a Progressive Music Award in the Anthem category. Classic Rock magazine also awarded it 9/10 and called it a ‘cinematic and contemporary classic’.
