about

THE FIFTH ALBUM FROM STEVEN WILSON AND AVIV GEFFEN

Blackfield is the collaboration between Israeli songwriter and musician Aviv Geffen, and British musician and producer Steven Wilson. Blackfield V sees a return to the full partnership that made the first two albums such firm favourites with fans, hinted at by the reprisal of the medicine bottle in the artwork from their first album.

The pair makes for a formidable musical force; Geffen has worked with legendary producers Tony Visconti and Trevor Horn, has played live with U2 and Placebo, and is currently a judge on the Israeli TV show The Voice. Wilson, after a long tenure as the leader of the hugely influential band Porcupine Tree, has since embarked on a highly successful solo career, achieving 3 UK top 40 albums (the most recent also making the top 3 in Germany, and The Netherlands), and 4 Grammy nominations.

Written and recorded over a period of 18 months in both Israel and England, Blackfield V contains 13 linked songs that form a flowing 45-minute ocean themed song cycle. With the pair expertly handling vocals, guitars, and keyboards, they brought in Tomer Z from the Blackfield band on drums, Eran Mitelman on keys, and string arrangements were performed by the London Session Orchestra. Blackfield V is a powerful journey through catchy melodies, lush arrangements, and stunning production, with legendary producer/engineer Alan Parsons working on three of the album’s key tracks.

“Aviv’n’Steven in perfect harmony once again” - Prog (UK)

"Blackfield is back with all their might... All of the 13 tracks have a tremendous class, catchy hooks back to back, brilliantly arranged" - Eclipsed (DE)

"A return to the first two records, illuminated by luminous arrangements and production" - Rock Hard (FR)

"this pair of aces surprised us again with an intimate and emotional album" - Metal Hammer (ES)
