A few weeks before dropping the full album, Wakeley first teased the fans with an all-star collaboration with Joe Satriani on the first single unveiled from the album and titled “Conflicted.” The success was instantaneous and the song climbed to the top of the charts in no time.
Following-up on “Conflicted,” Kitt Wakeley released another track from the upcoming album titled “Sinners And Saints.”
The Indie Hall of Fame inductee worked with the London Philharmonic and London Voices at the legendary Abbey Road Studios for the recording of the totality of the album, including the already released compositions “Conflicted” and “Sinners And Saints.”
“Sinners and Saints” is built on an anthemic progression, starting at a rather slow-pace, but rapidly develops into a full-scale orchestral symphony, a signature he is known for worldwide.
It’s been years that Wakeley creates within his own invented genre, bridging rock music with massive orchestras. He explains: “It was interesting to see the yin and yang of two genre’s colliding. More interesting was performing live. The prim and proper orchestral players interacting with the rock musicians was a sociological case study. Everyone got along great and had an appreciation for what the others did. That’s where I initially came up with the concept of “Sinners and Saints”. Eventually, it made sense to create the vernacular “Symphony of Sinners and Saints”.
