Steven Wilson Posts Deepfake Video For Self

Tuesday, 02 February 2021 Written by Jon Stickler

Steven Wilson has unveiled a video for Self.

The unnerving black and white clip was directed by longtime visual collaborator Miles Skarin and utilises deepfake technology to transform Wilson into various celebrities, including Donald Trump, President Joe Biden, David Bowie, Robert Downey Jr., Paul McCartney and Mark Zuckerberg.

The track, meanwhile, appears on his sixth album, 'The Future Bites', which was released through Caroline International last Friday (January 29). The former Porcupine Tree frontman said:

"Self is about our new age of narcissism and self-obsession, one in which a human race that used to look out with curiosity at the world and the stars now spends much of its time gazing at a little screen to see themselves reflected back in the mirror of social media. In that sense everyone now can take part in the notion of celebrity, and has the potential to share their life with an invisible mass of people they will never meet. The video take things further by exploring the idea that anyone can now project a version or “self” that has no bearing on reality, and by using only well known faces the deception is made transparent."

Wilson will embark on The Future Bites Tour across the UK in September. Remaining tickets are on sale now.
