He is also pleased to reveal the second track to be taken from the album, and you can view a lyric video for the track ‘Press Reset’ here:

Tim had this to say: “Press Reset was one of the first songs I wrote for Stupid Things That Mean The World and it was something that felt different immediately. The band fleshed out my demo and produced some really interesting and powerful performances (from Colin Edwin’s atmospheric Ebow bass parts to Andrew Booker’s inventive drum patterns and the very direct guitar contributions from Bruce Soord).

Lyrically, the song deals with a person on the verge of escaping from the pressures of their life.

Produced by Bowness and mixed by The Pineapple Thief’s Bruce Soord (who also adds some choice guitar parts), ‘Stupid Things That Mean The World’ features a core of Bowness along with members of the No-Man live band (Stephen Bennett, Michael Bearpark, Andrew Booker) and Colin Edwin (Porcupine Tree), augmented by contributions from Peter Hammill, Phil Manzanera, Pat Mastelotto (King Crimson), Anna Phoebe, David Rhodes (Peter Gabriel, Kate Bush, Scott Walker), and Rhys Marsh. As on Abandoned Dancehall Dreams, Classical composer Andrew Keeling, best known for his work with The Hilliard Ensemble, Evelyn Glennie and Robert Fripp, provides striking string arrangements. The album was mastered by The Pineapple Thief’s Steve Kitch.
