Legendary rock guitarist Steve Hackett & InsideOutMusic are pleased to announce reissues of his classical catalogue, beginning in August 2024 with “Bay Of Kings’ & ‘Momentum“. Steve comments: “My love of classical guitar began to coalesce with both Bay of Kings and Momentum, which showed another side of the guitar. This was the opposite of Rock ‘n Roll… A more romantic and personal approach already hinted at within both the Genesis music and my solo work. I’m proud that these albums are getting a second lease of life.”
“Bay Of Kings” was originally released in 1983, and is his first album of instrumental, classical guitar music, with contributions from Nick Magnus & John Hackett.
‘Momentum’ was originally released in 1988, and sees Steve crafting beautiful compositions, alongside contributions from his brother John Hackett on flute. 

Both albums have been newly remastered for vinyl, and will be available as Gatefold 180g LP’s in both black and limited coloured vinyl editions. New digipak CD editions will also be available, and they can all be pre-ordered for a 2nd August 2024 release here:

The titles “A Midsummer Night’s Dream“, “Metamorpheus’ & ‘Tribute” are all also now available digitally via InsideOutMusic, with physical releases expected later in 2024.
These follow hot on the heels of his critically-acclaimed new studio album “The Circus and the Nightwhale”. A rite-of-passage concept album with a young character called Travla at the centre of it, the 13 tracks have an autobiographical angle for the musician who says about his 30th solo release: “I love this album. It says the things I’ve been wanting to say for a very long time.”

Steve Hackett & band will tour the world extensively in 2024, including a brand new UK tour ‘Genesis Greats, Lamb Highlights & Solo’, which will see him return to the legendary Royal Albert Hall. For the full list of dates, head to:
