It's taken from his upcoming solo album A Handful Of Memories, a contemporary classical piano album which is the result of an appreciation upon reflection of Adam's past experiences, trips with his family, his touring families and friends in some places that hold special memories for him.
"With this album I tried to make each piece reflect my experience in each location, not try and recreate a 'sound' or 'style' from the specific place," Wakeman explains. "It felt very special sitting down at a Steinway grand piano, and with the empty seats in the auditorium and the intentional lack of additional instrumentation, this is about as exposed as I can get and not get arrested."
Wakeman will join Damian Wilson in a run of their joint shows in the UK and Europe in November and December, where he will perform material from A Handful Of Memories.
A Handful Of Memories will be available on LP, CD and download/streaming format. Pre-orders will get two digital bonus tracks, Abbotsham Cliffs and Polruan.
