Steven Wilson: "Collapse The Light Into Earth" (The Future Bites sessions)

Steven Wilson has posted the second of his live in the studio performances. Dubbed The Future Bites Sessions he performs stripped down versions from his forthcoming new album as well material from his extensive back catalogue. He picked a special one, the first ever live version of the Porcupine Tree song Collapse The Light Into Earth.

This song was originally released as the closing track on Porcupine Tree's 2002 album In Absentia. That version was written and mostly recorded in my home studio in 2001 during the immediate aftermath of 9/11, with Richard Barbieri adding to it later during the album sessions in New York. To date the song has never been performed live by either PT or my solo band, so I thought it would be a great choice to do in this format. I really hope you enjoy it, and please feel free to make suggestions of other songs you'd like to hear me do as part of the series.
