From the short, sharp shocks of Always The Stranger and Only A Fool to the long-form ambition of the sensuous Dark Nevada Dream, the cinematic Electro-Ballroom of Glitter Fades and the dystopian paranoia of Say Your Goodbyes Parts 1 and 2, Butterfly Mind delivers a thrilling fusion of Art Rock invention, Post-Punk energy and epic soulful ballads.
Tim’s seventh solo album - his sixth for InsideOutMusic / Sony - features the stellar rhythm section of Richard Jupp (Elbow) and Nick Beggs alongside a spectacular generation and genre spanning guest list including Ian Anderson (Jethro Tull), Dave Formula (Magazine), Peter Hammill (Van Der Graaf Generator), Martha Goddard (The Hushtones), Gregory Spawton (Big Big Train), Mark Tranmer (The Montgolfier Brothers / GNAC), Saro Cosentino (Franco Battiato), Italian Jazz musician Nicola Alesini, US singer Devon Dunaway (Ganga), Stephen W Tayler (Kate Bush) and, marking his first studio work with Tim for nearly three decades, former No-Man violinist Ben Coleman.
Produced by Tim Bowness and Brian Hulse (Plenty), the album was mixed and mastered by Steven Wilson. The stunning artwork is by Carl Glover.
Limited double CD version with alt mix of the album, an album outtake and two demos.

‘Butterfly Mind feels like the work of a reinvigorated singer. This stings like a bee.’ - Classic Rock

Unsettling and haunting, yet shot through with flashes of optimism and hope, Butterfly Mind is a vibrant offering that shows an artist unafraid to play with the possibilities of his music.
