Brand New Steve Hackett Track to Debut on Planet Rock

Brand New Steve Hackett Track to Debut on Planet Rock -

Planet Rock have the world exclusive first play of Steve Hackett's first track taken from his new album 'Genesis Revisited II.'

The UK based station will debut the track, entitled 'Chamber of 32 Doors' today (Thursday 7th) at 7pm on air during Nicky Hornes show. The track will then be available to stream via their website for one week.

The new album will be released on 22 October and will feature a collection of re-recorded Genesis classics plus a handful of originals recorded especially for this release with guest appearances from the likes of Steve Rothery, Steven Wilson, Mikael Akerfeldt and many more.

"This time around, I've tried to satisfy what everyone wants, including myself" says Hackett about how he chose the tracklist "Initially, I was thinking of just going for the best songs not featured on the first album. But then people thought I should do those tracks where the guitar was emphasized. So, I've done both. I've also included four songs with Genesis threads, most of which were written during the period and had a Genesis feel, such as the co-written 'Shadow of the Hierophant'."

Steve Hackett's 'Genesis Revisited II' will be released on Oct.22 through Inside Out Music.
