Steve Hackett on the cast behind solo album The Night Siren
Global cast join the ex-Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett on his latest solo album
Steve Hackett releases The Night Siren via InsideOut on March 24. He refers to it as “the best album I’ve ever done”.
Comprising 11 new tracks, it features a multinational cast of musicians, many of whom Hackett has recorded on his travels. Orphaned Land’s Kobi Farhi, tar player Malik Mansurov from Azerbaijan and Icelandic percussionist Gulli Briem are among those who have performed on the album, alongside Christine Townsend (violin and viola) and double bass player Dick Driver, who originally played in Hackett’s first band Quiet World. The album also reunites the guitarist with members of his touring band, including Nad Sylvan and Roger King.
