"How Was Your Ride?" and "Sorrys."
HWYR is pretty dreamy.
All 3 of the new tracks are also on Spotify.
New song "Family Man"..it's okay, although I need to hear it with headphones which I should tomorrow at work.
recent interview with Aviv.
some clips and a lot of details about Blackfield V, comparing it to the 1st album. "October" may end of being 1 of SW top 5 songs ever, etc.
another clip with talking. Also that description below says February 10th, 2017.

Kscope went behind the scenes at Trevor Horn's studio in London whilst the trio, Aviv Geffen with Steven Wilson and producer Alan Parsons, were recording the newest Blackfield album - V. Aviv and Alan explain how all three of them came together, and what can be expected from the new record.
Written and recorded over a period of 18 months in both Israel and England, Blackfield V contains 13 linked songs that form a flowing 45 minute ocean themed song cycle. With the pair expertly handling vocals, guitars, and keyboards, they brought in Tomer Z from the Blackfield band on drums, Eran Mitelman on keys, and string arrangements were performed by the London Session Orchestra. Blackfield V is a powerful journey through catchy melodies, lush arrangements, and stunning production, with legendary producer / engineer Alan Parsons working on three of the album’s key tracks.

pushed back until January 20th.
Unfortunately the release of the new Blackfieldalbum has been delayed, and Kscope have rescheduled it for 20th January. We apologise profusely for this, but it is due to circumstances beyond our control. Frustrating though it is, hopefully when you hear the album you will agree it was worth the wait! In the meantime we hope to bring you more audio and video preview material from the finished album soon.
why an album this long is a double lp? kind of surprising other than for vinyl thickness, etc.
Blackfield V will soon be available to pre-order. There will be a gatefold vinyl edition (on 2 LPs cut at 45rpm for maximum quality), a standard CD, and a deluxe CD/Blu-Ray edition. The Blu-Ray includes the album in both high resolution stereo and 5.1 surround sound. The 13 track album runs approximately 45 minutes, track listing as follows:
1. A Drop in the Ocean (1.23)
2. Family Man (3.37)
3. How Was Your Ride? (3.58)
4. We’ll Never Be Apart (2.54)
5. Sorrys (2.58)
6. Life is an Ocean (3.26)
7. Lately (3.24)
8. October (3.31)
9. The Jackal (3.56)
10. Salt Water (2.39)
11. Undercover Heart (4.02)
12. Lonely Soul (3.42)
13. From 44 to 48 (4.31)
Sounds intriguing, and like that write-up says, I agree that the 1st 2 albums were favorites or their best to me. Steven Wilson's involvement has a lot to do with that.

Blackfield V will be released on 18th November byKscope, and sees a return to the full partnership that made the first two albums such firm favourites with fans. Written and recorded over a period of 18 months in both Israel and England, Blackfield V contains 13 linked songs that form a flowing 45 minute ocean themed song cycle. With Steven Wilson and Aviv Geffen expertly handling vocals, guitars, and keyboards, Tomer Z from the Blackfield band on drums, and string arrangements performed by the London Session Orchestra, the album is a powerful journey through catchy melodies, lush arrangements, and stunning production. Legendary producer / engineer Alan Parsons produced three of the album’s key tracks.
Both musicians consider Blackfield V to be their best collaboration to date. The album will be released by Kscope as a Digipack CD with a 16 page booklet, CD/Blu Ray with high resolution audio, and double vinyl.
