Hackett confirms 14-disc box set

Premonitions 14-disc pack covers 1975-1983 and features Steven Wilson remixes

Steve Hackett has confirmed the release of his Premonitions 14-disc box set on October 16 via Universal/Virgin.

Steven Wilson revealed the project’s existence in May. Now details of the pack, which focuses on Hackett’s first six albums with the Charisma label, are official.

The Super-deluxe set includes 10 CDs and four DVDs, and 67 previously-unreleased tracks among the total of 135 songs.

Hackett says: “I’m pleased that Steven has done several new mixes in both 5.1 surround and stereo. The set will also contain a number of live shows from the era. I’ve enjoyed being involved with this comprehensive trip down memory lane.”

He adds: “There's also a substantial booklet containing a lot of background info, along with many wonderful Armando Gallo shots. Roger Dean has painted a beautiful picture for the cover. For me it's a proud souvenir that highlights those years.”

Hacket will showcase some of the lesser-known material in the set on his upcoming tour. His Charisma albums Please Don’t Touch and Spectral Mornings are to be re-released separately, along with Wilson remixes, next year.
