The legendary rock guitarist Steve Hackett is releasing his new studio album "The Circus And The Nightwhale". The 12 tracks of "The Circus And The Nightwhale", a concept album with a young character named Travla at its center, have an autobiographical angle for the musician who says about his 30th solo release: "I love this album. It says the things I've wanted to say for a long time." Recorded between tours in 2022 and 2023 at the Siren studio in the United Kingdom - with guest contributions from Sweden, Austria, the USA, Azerbaijan, and Denmark - the lineup of "The Circus And The Nightwhale" features a number of familiar faces alongside Steve on electric and acoustic guitars, 12-string, mandolin, harmonica, percussion, bass, and vocals. Roger King (keyboards, programming, and orchestral arrangements), Rob Townsend (sax), Jonas Reingold (bass), Nad Sylvan (vocals), Craig Blundell (drums), and Amanda Lehmann on vocals. Nick D'Virgilio and Hugo Degenhardt return as guests on drums, engineer extraordinaire Benedict Fenner appears on keyboards, and Malik Mansurov is back with the tar. Finally, Steve's brother John Hackett is back on flute. In summary, Steve says about "The Circus And The Nightwhale": "It's a delightful journey that starts dirty, scratchy, and smoky and transitions into heavenly and divine. How can you resist?" The album will be available on Ltd CD+Blu-ray Mediabook (including 5.1 surround sound & hi-res stereo mixes), Standard CD Jewelcase, Gatefold 180g LP + LP booklet, and as a digital album. The Circus and the Nightwhale by Steve Hackett, with a release date of February 16, 2024, features the following songs: "Taking You Down", "Enter the Ring", "Ghost Moon and Living Love", "Breakout", and more. This version of The Circus and the Nightwhale appears as a 1xCD+1xBlu-ray in a Mediabook packaging.
