Check out new song 'Stars Around My Heart'...

Steve Mason is set to release new album 'About The Light' on January 18th.

The songwriter has been involved in the vinyl issue of The Beta Band's collection 'The Three E.P.s', a much-loved document toasting it 20th anniversary.

New album 'About The Light' finds Steve Mason looking to the future, with Stephen Street producing studio sessions that utilise the Scottish artist's full live band.

Steve Mason explains: “I decided with this album that I wanted to get my live band involved at every stage because I wanted to capture the energy that we produce when we play live shows, so this time the band and myself worked on a collection of songs over the course of last year”.

The soulful pop of new song 'Stars Around My Heart' leads the way, with Brother Willis directing the full visuals.

Brother Willis comments: “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 We share a mutual love for the textures and warm personality that outdated formats have in contrast to the crisp HD 8K of today.”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.”

Tune in now.
