Steve Hackett issues Vampire promo

Steve Hackett has released a video for his track Love Song To A Vampire, which features a guest appearance from Yes bassist Chris Squire.

The track is taken from Hackett’s new solo album Wolflight and tells the tale of an abusive relationship.

Hackett says: “The Love Song To A Vampire video was directed by Paul Gosling whose filming I was impressed by. Most of the film was shot in the historic and atmospheric city of Leicester.

“Paul was keen to highlight the combination of Gothic imagery with the portrayal of an abusive relationship implicit in the song. We discussed the ideas together… the transformation from the glamour that lures the victim to the final destructive hold.”

Hackett will tour the UK later this year in support of Wolflight.
