Steve Hackett premieres The Wheel’s Turning

Steve Hackett has premiered his video for The Wheel’s Turning with TeamRock.

It’s taken from his album Wolflight, his first original solo outing since 2011, to be released on March 30.

Hackett recently explained: “Wolflight reflects everybody’s struggle for freedom on a journey travelling through both inner and outer space. It explores sounds from as far afield as Greece, Azerbaijan, the deep American South, Sahara desert and beyond, from all our yesterdays, evoking the ancient past.”

Wolflight is available for pre-order now. The former Genesis guitarist last month confirmed Flower Kings mastermind Roine Stolt as a member of his band for his 2015 tour dates, which include a run of UK appearances in October:
