Steve posted on his blog a reflection on his new album "Under A Mediterranean Sky" defining it very personal.

“There is no rock 'n' roll, there is no voice and there is no electric guitar - says Steve -. But my classical guitar is flanked by many other acoustic instruments and orchestral sounds, on an imaginary journey through the many regions that surround that vast area of ​​sea and sky, with its enchanted mysteries, warmth and romanticism. "

Hackett shared some of the writing with his wife Jo, in regards to the lyrics. Roger King orchestrated and blended all the sounds. 

“I am thrilled with the ensemble of fantastic musicians - continues Steve -. Franck Avril on oboe, Christine Townsend on violin and viola and my brother John on flute add color to the orchestral arrangements, while with Arsen Petrosyan al duduk and Malik Mansurov al tar, together with my chirango and Arabic lute, we venture into the heart of the Middle East. The always versatile Rob Townsend on flute and soprano sax moves astride different musical dimensions like the Colossus of Rhodes. "

“On weekdays I keep recording with Roger and those creative fires are burning alive… Many other musicians who have sent their contributions from a distance are also involved. It won't be long before I announce my next passionate project, so check out this space! "

On June 26, Steve recalled with this post on Facebook that the works are proceeding quickly and that the album is at an advanced level.

The 23 June Steve released this video, in which he mentions the different "cut" of the album, compared to the previous ones, and offers a small preview of the recordings with orchestral sounds.

And here's what he posted on June 11th. In the story on lockdown in blog of his site, anticipates the return to recordings with faithful Roger King.

«I also used this time to prepare a new album, in view of an acoustic project that involved orchestral sounds and unusual instruments that I had never used before with this type of album», writes Steve in his blog.

And goes on: “As soon as it was possible, Roger and I got together to start recording. We are already halfway there and we are starting to reach the musicians, who can be involved from a distance. It is a challenge, but an exciting project that is already exploding in life. Even if you are physically stuck in one place, music can pull you out and take you on that sonic magic carpet to any place you want to dream .... I think it's important to have things to aim for and to expect at times like these. "

and the soundtrack to Philip Noyce's film Rabbit-Proof Fence (released as the album Long Walk Home), has continued to feed that interest.
