Ex-Beta Band frontman Steve Mason has announced his fourth solo album! About the Light is his fourth full-length, following the widely acclaimed Boys Outside (2010), Monkey Minds in the Devil'€™s Time (2013) and Meet the Humans (2016).

Having written most of his previous albums alone, About the Light marks a change in approach for Steve. "€œI 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,"€ he explains.

"When I listen to this album it feels and sounds like the first '€˜legitimate'€™ record that I have ever made," he continues. "It'€™s hard to explain but it sounds like a '€˜real'€™ album. I think that is partly the production, the playing and the work that I did with the band for all those months in our rehearsal room on the South Coast. It's a beautiful, confident, positive, angry, loving and gentle album which once again moves what I do forward. David Bowie said that you should always be slightly out of your comfort zone if you want to achieve greatness, and for the first time perhaps ever, I deliberately pushed myself into that place. Who doesn'€™t want greatness?"
