PRE-ORDER ALBUM

More about the album

Mixed and mastered by Steven Wilson, Lost In The Ghost Light uses a core band of Stephen Bennett, Colin Edwin (Porcupine Tree), Bruce Soord (The Pineapple Thief), Hux Nettermalm (Paatos) and Andrew Booker, plus guests including Kit Watkins (Happy The Man/Camel), Steve Bingham (No-Man), David Rhodes (Peter Gabriel / Kate Bush) and the legendary Ian Anderson (Jethro Tull). Andrew Keeling (Robert Fripp/Hilliard Ensemble/Evelyn Glennie) arranges for string quartet and flute on three of the album’s songs.

Featuring some stunning solos and harmonically rich compositions, Lost In The Ghost Light is a concept album revolving around the onstage and backstage reflections of a fictional ‘classic’ Rock musician in the twilight of his career.

Jarrod Gosling provides the fantastically detailed artwork, which includes a visual history of the career of the concept’s subject.

Ian Anderson contributes flute to ‘Distant Summers’, track 8 on ‘Lost In The Ghost Light’.
