Steve Hackett has shared a video showcasing the Wind & Wuthering track Afterglow.

The footage has been taken from Hackett’s upcoming album Genesis Revisited Band and Orchestra: Live at the Royal Festival Hall, which will be released on October 25.

It was recorded at the London venue in October last year, where Hackett was joined by his band featuring vocalist Nad Sylvan, keyboardist Roger King, drummer Gary O'Toole, saxophonist Rob Townsend and bassist Jonas Reingold, along with special guests John Hackett and Amanda Lehmann and the Heart Of England Orchestra conducted by Bradley Thachuk.

Speaking about the performance, Hackett says: "The huge team with band and orchestra adds a rich beauty to the ambience of Afterglow – one of my favourite Genesis songs."

Genesis Revisited Band & Orchestra: Live At The Royal Festival Hall will launch on 2CD/Blu-ray and 2CD/DVD and will also include a documentary. The package will also contain promos for Peace, Under The Eye Of The Sun and Beasts In Our Time.

Hackett is currently preparing to head back out on the road across the UK where he’ll revisit Genesis album Selling England By The Pound, along with material from Spectral Mornings to celebrate its 40th anniversary.
