Steven Wilson: Anyone But Me

Steven Wilson has released a new single, Anyone But Me, a ballad that could be mistaken for an ELO song. A demo of the track can be found on the cassette of the Limited Edition Deluxe Box Set version of his latest album The Future Bites. Wilson:

This song was a casualty of COVID-19. It was originally the closing song on 'The Future Bites', the album was even mastered and cut with it in place, but the delay in releasing the album gave me the chance to re-evaluate and I decided to replace it with the more laid back and atmospheric 'Count Of Unease'. I still love this song though. Lyrically it’s about how it’s now possible to present to the world a version of yourself via social media that may have no bearing on reality - photos of yourself in places you’ve never been, hanging out with friends you’ve never met. It’s becoming more important to create the illusion of a desirable life on social media than it is to actually live it.
