Here is Steve's account of the song's genesis:
"The lockdown cobwebs are swept away in one fell swoop! - says Steve on his Facebook page - With the monstrous rhythm section of Jonas, Craig, Nick D'Virgillio and Phil Ehart along with the soaring sax and bass clarinet by Rob, Nad, Amanda Lehmann, Lorelei & Durga McBroom and myself on vocals, Sodirkhon Ubaidulloev's dutar , Malik Mansurov's tar, Christine Townsend's violin and viola, Roger's darkly powerful organ and my guitar, we immerse ourselves fully in that wild release of energy.
It's a no holds barred album that rides that wave, unleashing those demons, dreams and nightmares, all crashing together on the shore. I enjoyed the power of this album allowing my guitar to scream with joy and anger ... and once again fly across those oceans to distant lands.
It's great to creatively connect with musicians from faraway places, especially when we haven't been able to meet. We all have a voice in our cacophony of sound and we shout together in Surrender of Silence! "
"Surrender of Silence" is also available for pre-order on HackettSongs in an exclusive limited edition Nebula 2LP + CD red / black vinyl.
WOMAD Festival creator Peter Gabriel spoke on the BBC Radio 4 Today show to ask for clarity and security from the British government. "We are not asking for alms .... we are asking for security" - says Peter Gabriel - "there is too much uncertainty for most festival promoters to take the risk."

WOMAD Festival of 2021 in Charlton Park has announced the first artists.

FRANCESCO GAZZARA - read theinterview with Horizons Genesis, on the occasion of the release of his latest album on Genesis:
Buster is a 1988 British romantic comedy based on the real-life events of the "Great Train Robbery".
He is portrayed by Phil Collins, Julie Walters, Larry Lamb and Sheila Hancock.
Watch the original trailer:
Buster Edwards (Phil Collins) is a 1963 London East End petty criminal. His patient wife June (Julie Walters) considers him a lovable scoundrel.
Buy the film:
"Buster: The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack" is the soundtrack of the film. Contains two Collins singles that topped the singles chart of the Billboard Hot 100.
Buy it (in the various versions):
The album is essentially a collection of old songs, with two songs by Phil Collins that were recorded specifically for the film.
"Two Hearts" won a Grammy Award for Best Song Written Specifically for a Movie or Television in 1989, un Golden Globe for best original song (paired with "Let the River Run" from Carly Simon's Working Girl) as well as one nomination to the Oscar for the best original song.
"A Groovy Kind of Love" and with a nomination ai Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance is the remake of a song raised to # 2 on the UK Singles Chart in 1965 by The Mindbenders.
Both came out as singles and made it to the top of the rankings Billboard Hot 100, with "A Groovy Kind of Love" which also reached No.XNUMX in the UK.
Other songs include Collins '"Big Noise" and Four Tops' "Loco in Acapulco", co-written by Collins. At the 1989 Brit Awards he won for Soundtrack / Cast Recording, while Collins received the award British Male Artist for the soundtrack.
"Two Hearts" and "A Groovy Kind of Love" were not released on a Phil Collins solo album until "... Hits" in 1998.
Live versions appeared on the album "Serious Hits ... Live!" of 1990.
Remember Phil Collins in his autobiography:
... that the soundtrack, like the whole film, sails in troubled waters. The producers want the full actor / singer / songwriter package, but Phil isn't willing to give up. They will only have the actor.
"Two Hearts" is inserted in the credits and then Phil agrees to sing it.
In "A Groovy Kind of Love" Phil's voice was supposed to be only in a demo, which, however, when inserted into a scene of the film as a test, works so well that Collins has to give in.
"I just had to blow up those damn doors and instead I find myself with yet another single at number one in England and America, plus a lot of criticism for having recorded another cover of light music from the 60s, however much it was. just a cinematic project ", Phil remembers.

"Keep on Running" does not appear in the compact disc version (excluding those in the US and Canada) for legal reasons.
Watch the making of the film:
The reception of the film was not unanimous.
The protagonists' performances were appreciated but the tone of the film was criticized.
In particular, the romanticization of crime was not accepted and the film was branded as amoral, a fun but fairytale-like view of breaking the law.
For this reason, Prince Charles and Princess Diana canceled their presence at the film's premiere on September 15, 1988, on the advice of Phil Collins. Collins said he wanted to avoid causing them embarrassment.
A stage version of Buster was staged between 2000 and 2004 in various locations across the UK with (among others) Ray Quinn in the main cast.
"Genesis began the Trick Of A Tail tour with several shows in Ontario and Buffalo, New York in March and gained confidence in the new set and new lineup before playing in front of the home crowd."
Read the Horizons Genesis article:
"They played two shows at the Hammersmith Odeon on June 10th and 11th.
Collins greets the audience by saying: 'Good evening London ... The next thing we're going to play for you, if you remember the last time you saw us it was probably at Wembley we played Lamb Lies Down On Broadway for you. And tonight we took three pieces from the story ... and we rather casually renamed it 'Lamb Stew'.
For "White Mountain" Rutherford says: 'And back in the days when the tinkling of beer mugs was heard during the acoustic tunes, we were playing songs from the Trespass album. Acoustic songs from the Trespass album. So tonight we should play one called 'White Mountain'.
Steve Hackett introduces his song "Entangled" by saying: 'It's a waltz, a slow three-beat so take your partners'.
Before "Los Endos" Collins announces that they have recorded the show for an album. 'I suppose, since you are all there, you will buy it.'
The encore is the medley of "It" and "Watcher Of The Skies". The latter is instrumental and has never been sung by Collins live. "
“Freedom Flight”, a two-minute feature film, featuring Amnesty International activists at five global landmarks and celestial drone art exhibits to celebrate the 60th anniversary.
Watch the video:
An orchestral version of Peter Gabriel's hymn for human rights "Biko" provides the soundtrack featuring the voices of the gospel choir of the Spirituals in London and Angelique Kidjo and Nazanin Boniadi, among others, for a powerful narrative of the poem "Ode to Amnesty "specially written by Bill Shipsey for the film and now translated into twenty languages.
"Freedom Flight", produced by Art for Amnesty and Celestial, a cutting-edge drone art company, was shot for Amnesty International France on Robben Island in Cape Town, Sydney Opera House, Jama Masjid Mosque, New Delhi, Plaza del Zócalo, Mexico City and the Palais de Chaillot, Paris.
Gabriel, Amnesty International's ambassador of conscience and longtime supporter of the human rights organization, said:
“It was a race against time but it was definitely worth it. The Spirituals Choir is committed to telling stories of social justice to a new generation that marries very well with the one who inspired by Steve Biko.
“Now more than ever, we need as many people as possible to start addressing injustice personally and to get involved in any way possible. Amnesty has done amazing work all over the world that I believe is really important and supported for forty years, so I was very happy that I was asked to help with this beautiful film. "
