STEVE HACKETT announces the release of ‘Selection’ to coincide with the European tour

As the Genesis Revisited live experience is about to be unleashed, Steve Hackett announces the release of Selection on 13th May; the single CD album will feature a collection of songs taken from Genesis Revisited II and include a newly recorded version of Carpet Crawlers, a pre-tour treat from the legendary guitarist with Ray Wilson on vocal duties.  Carpet Crawlers will also be available as a single track for digital download.

"This single CD album features some of my favourite shorter songs and highlights from Genesis Revisited II’ – says Hackett enthusiastically – "along with additional track ‘Carpet Crawlers’ sung by Ray Wilson, who joined Genesis as singer on Calling All Stations. He does a great job here filling Gabriel’s shoes, but with his own special style. It’s great to be flying the flag once more for the early Genesis sound on the eve of the World Tour…"
Full track listing is:
1. Carpet Crawlers
2. 11th Earl of Mar
3. The Lamia
4. Dancing with the Moonlit Knight
5. Entangled
6. Shadow of the Hierophant
7. Can-Utility and the Coastliners
8. Afterglow
9. Blood on the Rooftops

Since its release in October 2012, when it entered the charts in several european countries, Genesis Revisited II has collected rave reviews: works wonderfully (Classic Rock), It’s faithful, full-blooded (Mail on Sunday), a wonderful listen (Music News) are only a few of the expressions used by critics to describe this outstanding tribute to the unforgettable prog pioneers. The album celebrates the Genesis period between 1971 and 1977 – known as the band’s ‘Golden Era’ – and follows the first instalment released by Hackett in 1996.   
The Genesis Revisited Tour will be Hackett’s biggest production to date, incorporating classics from both Genesis Revisited albums in a unique show not to be missed. Steve Hackett is the first member of Genesis to revisit this phase of the band’s history and fans have welcomed the opportunity to take a trip down memory lane, with many dates already sold out.  Selection offers fans a handpicked anthology in preparation for the shows and, later, to relish the memory of one of their finest live music experiences.
