PORCUPINE TREE has returned with its first new music in almost 12 years.  The first song, An epic, eight-minute-long reintroduction to PORCUPINE TREE’s truly singular sound, “Harridan” is joined by an official lyric video. 

Watch “Harridan” below.

Steven Wilson: “’Harridan’ and a few of the other new songs have been in play since shortly after the release of The Incident. They initially lived on a hard drive in a slowly growing computer file marked ‘PT2012’, later renamed ‘PT2015’, ‘PT2018’, and so on. There were times when we even forgot they were there, and times when they nagged us to finish them to see where they would take us. Listening to the finished pieces, it was clear that this wasn’t like any of our work outside of the band – the combined DNA of the people behind the music meant these tracks were forming what was undeniably, unmistakably, obviously a Porcupine Tree record. You’ll hear all of that DNA flowing right through ‘Harridan’.
