Devin Townsend, is a man who clearly has a lot going on. Originally Townsend was expected to be working on a new album called Lightwork, but has not revealed his next album will probably be one called The Puzzle. Townsend explained a little via Twitter, saying the album is likely the soundtrack to some kind of story.
Also, if you're wondering what the hell powaqquatsi is, it's (according to Wikipedia) "a Hopi neologism coined by [director Godfrey Reggio] meaning 'parasitic way of life' or 'life in transition'" in his 1988 American documentary film of the same name.
The PRP also dug up a quote from Townsend back in October discussing The Puzzle.
"Ok so: been hyper inspired making this bizzare project over the past few weeks called Puzzle. it’s basically done, but the video that accompanies it (which is how I’d like it to be taken in) has had the opportunity to get some great touches added, so I’m ive decided to release it as soon as the videos done instead… (maybe 10 days…) It’s sort of an ambient thing I guess, though really orchestrated… it’s one of the most cathartic things I’ve done in years. It came out in a fury… so much data in such short time :) I’ll keep tweaking it until the release because I’ve enjoyed the process so much and maybe you’ll like it too. It’s a trip. Thanks Travis for providing the perfect counterpart to what I’ve been hearing."
