The Glowing Man was recorded at Sonic Ranch, near El Paso, Texas, with John Congleton as recording engineer. Further recordings were made in Dallas, Seattle and Berlin.
The Glowing Man will be available on double CD, as well as a double CD/DVD format which includes a Swans live performance from 2015. In addition, the album will also be available as a deluxe triple gatefold vinyl set with poster & digital download.
