Steve Hackett: New Album in March 2017

The Night Siren, a musical trip around the world

There is no end to the news: Steve Hackett is going to release a new album in 2017! The Night Siren is set to come out on March 24.

Says Steve: "This latest waxing represents a bird's eye view of the world of a musical migrant ignoring borders and celebrating our common ancestry with a unity of spirit, featuring musicians, singers and instruments from all over the world. ... Boundaries often hold back the tide. But while the night siren wails, music breaches all defences. To quote Plato, 'When the music changes, the walls of the city shake'."

Artists from all over the world have participated in the making of the album. Besides a Celtic Uilleann Pipe there are musicians from Israel, Palestine, Iraq, Iceland and the United States.

The musicians en detail: Steve Hackett (guitar & vocals), Roger King (keyboards & programming), Nad Sylvan (vocals on Inca Terra), Rob Townsend (all things wind), Amanda Lehmann (vocals), Gary O'Toole (drums), Benedict Fenner (additional keyboards & programming). Additional music comes from singers Kobi and Mira (from Israel and Palestine), U.S. American Nick d'Virgilio (drums), Malik Mansurov (the tar, from Azerbaijan) and Gulli Breim (drums and percussion, from Iceland). Special musical accents are provided by Christine Townsend (violin, viola), Dick Driver (double bass), Troy Donockley (Celtic Uilleann) and Leslie Bennett (keyboards on The Gift).
