Video premiere: Blackfield – Jupiter
Israel’s leading counter-culture rock musician Aviv Geffen returns in August with Blackfield IV, featuring Steven Wilson and other special guests.
Blackfield was started by Aviv and Steven in 2001 and have previously released the albums Blackfield (2004), Blackfield II (2007) and 2011’s Welcome To My DNA.
Since Welcome To My DNA, Geffen’s profile has continued to rise. He has worked with legendary producers Tony Visconti and Trevor Horn, played live with U2 and Placebo, and has been a judge on the Israeli TV show, The Voice.
The son of esteemed Israeli poet Yehonatan Geffen, and the nephew of Moshe Dayan, he is huge star in his native country. An outspoken peace campaigner and fierce critic of the Israeli military, his frank political views have caused huge controversy while his records have earned him a string of gold albums.
Aviv contributed the writing and vocals on Blackfield IV, with Steven Wilson – who also mixed the album into stereo and 5.1 surround sound – adding guitar and vocal parts.
The new album, out on August 26 via KScope, includes guest vocal performances from Brett Anderson (Suede), Jonathan Donahue (Mercury Rev) and Vincent Cavanagh (Anathema).
