"Brand New" Hackett Downloadable Single Released; Fall Euro Tour Dates Announced

According to an e-mail from Steve Hackett's official site, you can now purchase a downloadable MP3 version of his new single, "Brand New." The download consists of an MP3 of the track (as a radio edit) along with unique DIY printable Kim Poor slipcase artwork in pdf format. Camino are testing demand with this exclusive version of the track which is featured on Hackett's new album, To Watch The Storms. If you like the idea of purchasing albums or singles in downloadable format, you might want to purchase a copy. If demand warrants it, Camino Records might make other titles, including rare material, available this way (personally, I prefer professionally pressed aluminum CDs and album sleeves to homemade CD-Rs and pdf print-outs, but I suppose that is becoming an "old fashioned" way of thinking?). 

In other Hackett news, tour dates have been announced for the U.K. and Sweden for October and early November (prior to the German dates already posted here). Click here to see the newly added dates.
