Steve Hackett has just released ‘Beasts in Our Time’ the third single to be taken from his new album At the Edge of Light released on 25th January.
“The track ‘Beasts In Our Time’ is the main thrust of this album, exposing fear, greed and intolerance,” said Hackett. “The eagle in the video symbolises the hatred and violence which nationalism breeds… And the clown, deceptive destructive forces which masquerade as fun and innocuous. We live in dangerous times where we stand on the edge of an abyss… But there is still the hope that the light of compassion can still win through.”
