Bonus Track Of The Day: Steve Hackett
Progressive rock giant Steve Hackett returns with his new album Beyond The Shrouded Horizon on September 26. Come inside to download an exclusive preview track from the album.
The guitarist says: “My new album Beyond The Shrouded Horizon breaks free from its moorings in early autumn. Invisible chords link pop to pomp, blues to baroque, embracing all genres discovered along the way. Let cthonic guitar forces and power of song take you to where waves crash through de-tuned orchestras over the edge of charted territories.”
This eagerly awaited new album follows hot on the heels of the tremendous success of Hackett’s previous opus Out Of The Tunnel’s Mouth, which until now has been heralded as his strongest work.
Hackett’s band features longtime collaborators Roger King (keyboards), Gary O’Toole (drums), Rob Townsend (sax, whistle, bass clarinet), Nick Beggs (bass) and the seductive vocals of Amanda Lehmann (who also plays guitar). Roger King and Steve’s wife Jo have written several of the tracks with Hackett. Special guests include Yes bassist Chris Squire, drummer Simon Phillips and flutist John Hackett, Steve’s brother.
