Steve Mason has announced that he will be releasing his fourth solo album About The Light on Double Six. The album will be available on multiple formats including vinyl on January 18th, 2019.
About the record Mason is quoted saying, “I’m a long-time fan of Steve’s work so it was an honour to make a video for him. The concept and inspiration were very much a collaborative effort with Steve. We share a mutual love for the textures and warm personality that outdated formats have in contrast to the crisp HD 8K of today. It was an incredible collaborative experiment to shoot on Tube Camera and modern camera and put it all out to tape and back to try and achieve the feeling of watching a beloved sci-fi movie from your youth. And a good excuse to have amazingly talented people build an alien vessel and hone their early 80’s visual effects skills.
We were aiming for an uplifting, Psychedelic Spielberg effect that hopefully we achieved.”
About The Light is available for pre-order on white vinyl now.
