Last month, we told you about some new music from respected guitarist Chester Kamen. Amongst many other artists, Chester has toured with Roger Waters, joining his band in 2002 and playing on subsequent tours, and with David Gilmour on his 2016 Rattle That Lock tour. He first played with David back in 1985 during the Live Aid show - David and Chester were both part of Bryan Ferry's band for that show (as was Jon Carin!).

Chester has, like many musicians, kept himself busy whilst lockdowns and restrictions due to Covid-19 have called a halt to many things - in particular, live performance. Last month, he shared his recently finished new piece of music called Take This, that runs for over 23 minutes. Chester told us that Take This is the first side of an album he is currently working on - following, or inspired by, the old Floyd blueprint of one long piece and several songs on the flip side.

The first of the songs on the second side of the album is now here - Brand New Day - which has a nice, optimistic feel to it (something we need in current times) and seems to have a bit of a Beatles-ish vibe to it. We'll update you as he progresses with the rest of the album:
