Recorded between tours in 2022 and 2023 at Siren studio in the UK – with guest parts beamed in from Sweden, Austria, the US, Azerbaijan and Denmark, the line-up for The Circus And The Nightwhale includes some familiar faces alongside Steve on electric and acoustic guitars, 12-string, mandolin, harmonica, percussion, bass and vocals. Roger King (keyboards, programming and orchestral arrangements), Rob Townsend (sax), Jonas Reingold (bass), Nad Sylvan (vocals), Craig Blundell (drums) and Amanda Lehmann on vocals. Nick D’Virgilio and Hugo Degenhardt return as guests on the drumstool, engineer extraordinaire Benedict Fenner appears on keyboards and Malik Mansurov is back with the tar. Finally, Steve’s brother John Hackett is present once more on flute.

Summing up The Circus And The Nightwhale, Steve says: It’s a lovely journey that starts dirty, scratchy and smoky and becomes heavenly and divine. How can you resist it?” The album will be available on Ltd CD+Blu-ray Mediabook (incl. 5.1 surround sound & hi-res stereo mixes), Standard CD Jewelcase, Gatefold 180g LP + LP-booklet & as digital album.
