Hot News: Steve Hackett reveals track list and more details about the new album “Genesis Revisited II”

More details have been revealed about Steve Hackett’s recently announced album Genesis Revisited II which is released on 22nd October through InsideOut/EMI Records. Reinterpreting Genesis classics from the period dearest to him, the ‘golden era’ 1971-77, Hackett is the first ex-member to re-record and tour that part of the band’s material. While he made sure the spirit of the timeless originals stayed intact, he enlisted the help of 35 very special guests to provide the songs with a new unique edge.

The (eagerly awaited) album includes some of the top performers of our days in Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree), Mikael Akerfeldt (Opeth), Simon Collins (Phil Collins’ son), Amanda Lehmann, Conrad Keely, Francis Dunnery, Neal Morse, John Wetton, Nad Sylvan and Nik Kershaw; Steve Rothery of Marillion and Roine Stolt of The Flower Kings and Transatlantic also join in to share guitar duties, while Jeremy Stacey and Gary O’Toole are amongst the chosen drummers. The album will be available in different formats, including a limited edition 2CD Media-book, and a unique 4LP & 2CD version. It’s a project of Wagnerian proportions! Steve says. I’ve remained true to the spirit of the original songs, whilst changing and highlighting details. The vocalists all contribute their own character to the whole. For track list details please see below.

This time around, I’ve tried to satisfy what everyone wants, including myself – comments Hackett on his choice for the track list.  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’.

Go back to the seminal Golden Era with Steve Hackett and his guests as they honour a truly unforgettable music legend.  A full two hours live set of Genesis goodness in support of the album will be rocking a venue near you in a world tour to be announced soon.
