Very limited edition on high quality grey & blue splatter vinyl in a beautiful detailed gatefold sleeve and with two (!) bonus tracks!
Love Over Fear was recorded in The Thin Ice Studio and is produced by Nick Barrett and Karl Groom. Musically the new album looks at the mid-90s period of the band for inspiration.
Comments on the new Pendragon album by frontman Nick Barrett: “The idea has been to rebel against the throwaway culture and instant gratification of the Spotifys of this world and create an actual thing with proper artwork that you can browse through by way of a hardback book nearly the size of a vinyl album sleeve and an album that contains 65 minutes of uplifting and melodic music,” Nick Barrett tells Prog. “Something you can get lost in… Damn it – something beautiful again! I’ve used the Paintbox, Breaking The Spell style of format in the arrangements and wanted to go back to meaningful guitar solos and use sounds similar to albums that I loved in the 70s, so there are tons of 12 string guitar sections, mellotron strings and very melodic keyboard parts,” explains Barrett. “But also something very new for Pendragon, a couple of what I feel are the best vocal performances I have ever done on two emotive piano/vocal songs called Starfish And The Moon and Whirlwind. There is also a rough and tumble traditional Irish type rock song called 360 Degrees which was inspired by moving to Cornwall, it’s very Celtic and has Zoe Devenish on fiddle. I can see it becoming our new Nostradamus!”
