and most interesting news bit: David Boulter teases here something potentially NEW for the 25th anniversary of the band (releasing-wise this would be this year 2018 with 1st album out in October 1993), but would probably be more realistically out in 2019 – something like “a history of the beginning of the band” musically mostly in Davids stories & music style.

from the description:

Singing Skies

stuart does not work with written words, his songs are formed and exist in his head only. Though there are countless interpretations (he has famously bad diction) the words for the songs have never been written down.

Suzanne Osborne is a painter. Between September 18th 2010 and September 17th 2011 she painted the sky everyday. The result is the exhibition ‘A year in small paintings – Skies, September 2010 – September 2011’.

‘As I watched Suzanne paint the sky – sometimes furiously to catch the moment that was quickly changing – I felt the connection to my songwriting. Moments of connection when a songs come are so fleeting, sometimes you have to work fast to give it enough form to survive’

These 2 elements are brought together in the book ‘Singing Skies’.
