For their 31st studio album, Hawkwind have collaborated with songwriter and conductor Mike Batt to recreate a selection of Hawkwind songs with an extra, orchestral ingredient.
Hawkwind invited Mike to help create arrangements for some of their most celebrated songs performed by the current line-up of Dave Brock, Richard Chadwick, Mr Dibs, Haz Wheaton and Magnus Martin.
Tracks such as ‘Quark, Strangeness and Charm’, ‘We Took The Wrong Step Years Ago’ and ‘Psychic Power’ are re-rooted acoustically, then embellished with a strength and majesty only Hawkwind can produce.
‘The Watcher’ features trademark guitar licks from very special guest Eric Clapton!
+ Limited indie vinyl version comes on one disc in a gatefold sleeve.
Dave Brock says: “Reinventing these familiar songs has been an interesting experience... we hope you like them.”
