UK prog rockers PORCUPINE TREE have released a video for brand new song ‘Of The New Day’. The song is taken from ‘Closure/Continuation’, the band’s first new album since 2009’s ‘The Incident’, which will be released through Music For Nations on June 24.

Watch “Of The New Day’ below.

Steven Wilson: “‘Of the New Day’ is a song of rebirth, emerging from darkness. It sounds deceptively simple, a recognisably atypical Porcupine Tree ballad. That is until you realise that the length of the bars is constantly changing, flipping between bars of regular 4/4 time to 3/4, to 5/4 to 6/4, 11/4, so that the track never settles into any steady time. I think it’s what Porcupine Tree does really well, to come up with a basic idea that’s almost intellectual or mathematical, but carry it off in a way that sounds completely natural and accessible. At least I hope there’s no sense of us being clever for the sake of it or putting technique over musicality.  That is unless you want to specifically home in on that side of the composition.’
