Guitar virtuoso Steve Hackett has released a track from his forthcoming album. It Is Fox’s Tango and a video for it can be viewed here: : https://youtu.be/H3syJOPqdC4
Wingbeats, the first single from the album, was released a few weeks ago and the video for it is still viewable here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-8qOFpMaRLo
Steve describes Fox’s Tango as: “a protest song at life’s inequalities – in other words, the poor versus the rich. With current conflicts, if we can’t learn to share the land, we’ll find ourselves sharing the graveyards. A song for an unbalanced world. Fox’s Tango has my playing at its angriest. I really let rip here!”
Steve’s new album, Surrender of Silence, will itself be released on 10th September 2021, on InsideOut Music. The release will be available in a variety of formats, as a Limited Edition CD+Blu-ray Mediabook in hardcover slipcase, Standard CD Jewel case, Gatefold 2LP+CD & LP-Booklet and Digital Album via Inside Out Music.

The album is a full-blown electric band release. Entitled Surrender of Silence, it is a further exploration of Hackett’s love of world music, discovering different sounds, moods and textures to deliver a rock album of extraordinary variety, power and beauty following hot on the heels of Under A Mediterranean Sky, an acoustic based travelogue that he released earlier this year.
Steve comments: “I enjoyed the power of this album allowing my guitar to scream in joy and rage… and once again flying across those oceans to distant lands. It’s terrific to connect creatively with musicians from far flung places, particularly when we’ve all been unable to meet. We all have a voice in our cacophony of sound and we cry out together in the Surrender of Silence!”
Beside looking forward to the album’s release, fans will soon be able to catch Steve in concert. He will be re-visiting the Genesis live classic Seconds Out along with material of his own. The dates can be seen below, but hurry if you are thinking of attending as some dates have already sold out!
