Steve Hackett has released “Underground Railroad,” the second single from his upcoming studio album, At The Edge Of Light.
The 10-track album is set to be released on January 25.
The new track features singer sisters Durga McBroom and Lorelei McBroom of Australian Pink Floyd.
The former Genesis guitarist spoke in detail about the song: “I was inspired to write “Underground Railroad” in Wilmington, Delaware, discovering about that amazing network that helped slaves escape in pre-Civil War America, spearheaded by brave people like Harriet Tubman. Durga and Lorelei McBroom (both sang with Pink Floyd) sound amazing, expressing that heartfelt pain. As well as electric guitar, I play Dobro acoustic and also harmonica, transporting us back to those times…”
Hackett’s previous studio effort was The Night Siren, released back in 2017.
