More information: Following 2018’s widely acclaimed Now We Have Power, the new record sees the Hum on triumphant form, with seven new songs including a thirteen-minute prog epic, The Yellow Ship.
“The music on this album was written in a very short period of time during the summer of 2018”, says keyboardist Matt Baber. “The plan was to then record the music quickly with the same spontaneous spirit, but over the course of the next 12 months the realities of trying to make the record happen whilst balancing ‘real life’ commitments meant that sadly we decided to drop the project. Fast forward to March 2020 and suddenly ‘real life’ added a slight twist to proceedings that we didn’t see coming!”
