John Hackett to release new studio album

Esoteric Antenna revealed last month the release of a new studio album from John Hackett in the early Autumn, featuring Steve Hackett and Nick Magnus. Yesterday John revealed the album cover along with the official release date.

John commented: John Hackett“I am delighted to announce the release of my new rock album “Another Life” on Esoteric Recordings (Cherry Red).

The scheduled release date is 25 September. This album is the follow-up to “Checking Out of London” with lyrics once again by Nick Clabburn. My brother Steve features on lead guitar with a special guest appearance by Anthony Phillips. The whole project is produced and mixed by Nick Magnus, also on keyboards, drums and programming.”

Nick Magnus added: “Thirteen songs, penned by John and lyricist Nick Clabburn, explore avenues of prog rock, art rock, pop, jazz, soul and folk, all tinted with their trademark sense of ‘noir’. A worthy successor to the acclaimed ‘Checking Out of London’, ‘Another Life’ will delight John’s fans, and is sure to win new ones.”
