Legendary guitarist Steve Hackett has already announced the release of a rock studio album titled Surrender of Silence which will be released on September 10, 2021 through Inside Out Music. The disc contains eleven new songs composed by the artist during the confinement, which for the first time, has completed two studio albums in the same year
Today, the renowned musician releases the third single of this new, ‘Natalia’. You can see the animated video below.
Steve comments: “The weight of the Russian nation – my music is mostly Slavic, inspired by all those classical Russian composers who tell the story of that emerging nation with its power struggles. Natalia is an ordinary Russian woman, constantly frustrated by a series of oppressive regimes. “
Surrender of Silence will be released on September 10, 2021 on a limited edition CD + Blu-ray Mediabook on slipcase, CD Standard Jewelcase, 2LP black on gatefold + CD and LP booklet and on digital album via Inside Out Music.
With the atmosphere already heated thanks to the acoustic trip that the musician gave us with his latest album ‘Under A Mediterranean Sky’, which premiered in January of this year and reached # 2 on the sales charts of classic albums in Gran Brittany, now Hackett brings us Surrender of Silence in which the musician lovingly explores the world of music, discovering new sounds, moods and textures to conceive a rock album with an extraordinary variety, powerful and precious at the same time.
Like Under A Mediterranean Sky, Surrender of Silence was also recorded during confinement and again Hackett called in a lot of musician friends from different countries to contribute to it. These are Hackett’s stage regulars: Roger King (keyboards, programming and orchestral arrangements), Rob Townsend (sax, clarinet), Jonas Reingold (bass), Nad Sylvan (singer) and Craig Blundell (drums) complemented by Phil Ehart and Nick D’Virgilio (drums), the talented voices of Amanda Lehmann, Durga and Lorelei McBroom, Christine Townsend (violin, viola), Malik Mansurov (tar) and Sodirkhon Ubaidulloev (dutar).
This album is completely recorded on electric: “I enjoyed the power of this album allowing me to shout with joy on the guitar… and once again flying over the oceans of different lands. It’s terrifying to creatively connect with musicians in far away places, especially when you can’t meet. We all have a voice in our cacophony sound and together we shout in the Surrender of Silence! ”
