Biff Byford has revealed that Saxon are planning to release a new covers album titled “Inspirations.” The band are currently finishing up the effort and more details are expected soon.
Byford said the following:
“I wanna tell you about a project we’re getting really excited about. We’re just finishing it; I’m just finishing the vocals off now. It’s gonna be a cover album.
Somebody had the idea of doing something a bit of fun, because our new Saxon album has been put back till next year. So, yeah, we’re gonna call it ‘Inspirations’, and it’s a collection of songs that inspired us and influenced us to go down the rock and roll highway, looking for fame and fortune. So, yeah, there’s some big songs on there, there’s some surprises, some really difficult songs to play and to sing. But we like doing it.”
He also added:
“I just finished the last vocal tonight. We did it the old way — old Marshall amps, old Marshall amps, real drums in a huge hallway in a big stately home that we used near York. So there’s gonna be a video about that soon. Hopefully you’re gonna be able to pre-order the album before release. And we’re gonna drop a single soon, so keep your eyes open on social media for that.”
