Genesis has released new music… kind of.
A new album, Genesis: 50 Years Ago, has been released. The album is full of recently discovered Genesis tracks from the 1960’s. The master tapes were recently found in an old warehouse and sent to Jonathan King, discovered and named the band. The tapes had seemingly been cast aside following the sale of London’s Regent Sound Studios in the 1970’s.
Along with producer Steve Levine, King remixed the tracks.
King says: “The multis were in an old warehouse and had been, with hundreds of others, since the two Regent Sound Studios had been bought and all the tapes stored away in the 60s or 70s.”
King also discussed how he felt listening to the master tapes. “With delight, we listened to the numerous tapes and takes. I could not believe how fantastic Peter Gabriel’s voice was – the reason I signed the group in the first place. And the songs are really great too. I think it is a tremendous album.”
50 Years Ago is now available to purchase. Check out the tracklist below.
