  • Description

    The Pineapple Thief, are one of the leading lights of Europe’s experimental rock domain, led by post-progressive mastermind Bruce Soord and reinforced by Gavin Harrison (King Crimson) on drums.

    In the lead up to their extensive forthcoming 2022 European and US tour (Feb through to June) in support of their latest studio album ‘Versions Of The Truth’, The Pineapple Thief present 'Give It Back', a new album featuring 12 new versions of earlier works including songs taken from the albums ‘Little Man’, ‘All The Wars’, ‘Tightly Unwound’ and more. Frontman Bruce Soord's newly recorded vocals and guitars, new Gavin Harrison drum parts, new mixing by Soord and Harrison and mastering by Steve Kitch propel this new release into a must-have that showcases the evolution of The Pineapple Thief.

    Gavin Harrison explains “When I first started working with The Pineapple Thief I had only played on the album “Your Wilderness” so when the time came to play live I obviously had to approach quite a few songs I didn’t know and hadn’t played before. Having spent some years in King Crimson (where this challenge was often presented to me), Robert Fripp suggested that you should approach every song as if it were new regardless of when it was written. So with the blessing of The Pineapple Thief, I developed my own take on some of the earlier material. As the tours went by I got curious about their huge back catalogue and found myself listening through and applying the ‘old song/new song' process and imagining how I could (sometimes radically) rework them. Initially just for the purposes of finding other songs to play live. However, Bruce encouraged me to go as far out as I wanted (including writing whole new sections) - after all, the original already existed - so why not breathe new life into these earlier songs? This isn’t a compilation album or any kind of selected ‘best of’ record - but rather the tunes that gave me inspiration to rearrange, rework, rewire.’

    The title track from the album is the first single to be released in February. Frontman Bruce Soord comments ‘Gavin went through the entire back catalogue and picked out Give it Back. When I heard what Gavin was doing, it inspired me to completely re-recorded and re-work the entire piece, it feels like a completely new song and it's already part of our live set.'

    Album artwork has been created by long time Porcupine Tree and Steven Wilson collaborator, Carl Glover. This edition of ‘Give It Back’ will be released as a 2 disc CD & Blu-ray (Audio - Hi-res Stereo/DTS-HD MA 5.1/Dolby Atmos) and presented in digipak.
