No-Man, the partnership between Tim Bowness and Steven Wilson, reissue their 2001 fourth album on Kscope
Originally released on the 3rd Stone label in February 2001, Returning Jesus is a collection of ambitious songs which combine Singer-Songwriter, Chamber Jazz, Progressive and Ambient influences with the band’s unique widescreen production and seductively melancholy compositions. Released two months following Steven Wilson’s 2017 solo album To The Bone.
Guest musicians include Steve Jansen (Japan/Rain Tree Crow) on drums, Colin Edwin (Porcupine Tree) on bass and double bass, Theo Travis (Soft Machine) on saxophone and flute, and Ian Dixon on trumpet. The late trumpeter Ian Carr (Nucleus), David Kosten (Faultline, Bat For Lashes) and Ben Christophers contribute to the evocative opening piece “Only Rain”.
The double 180g heavyweight audiophile vinyl edition – featuring a 2017 remaster by Steven Wilson – is packaged in a gatefold sleeve with additional artwork and photographs from regular No-Man collaborator Carl Glover.
