Peter Hammill’s 35th album under his own name is a finely crafted masterpiece that grapples fearlessly with the varied psychological aspects of old age. Forget the demon alcohol or drugs, advancing time is prog’s worst enemy as more of its veteran heroes, young guns when they started making waves half a century ago, are falling with increasing frequency. Peter Hammill, who co-formed Van der Graaf Generator at Manchester University 50 years ago, is one of the few to square up to their mortality on record. During his first three decades or so, Hammill often sang of the pain, anger or melancholy caused by lost love. From The Trees sees him reflecting on those changes that seem to set in after passing 60, questioning his lost youth and asking why all that energy wasn’t sometimes put to better use.
VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR co-founder Peter Hammill will release solo album "From The Trees" on November 3, he’s announced. It’s his first release since 2014’s "All That Might Have Been" and featured ten tracks in which the characters who pave their fretful way through these songs are facing up to or edging in towards twilight. What's coming to them are moments of realisation rather than resignation
This is the 25th studio album by Peter Hammill, released on his Fie! label in 1998. There is a large variety in the compositions, ranging from the minimalism of the final song, "The Light Continent", to the rough, almost Nadir-like sound of "Always is Next", the complex "Unrehearsed" and the ballad "Since the Kids". Peter Hammill performed the song "Unrehearsed" live many times. Nightman" can be heard on the live-album Veracious (2006).
Peter Hammill, the much-revered progressive rock luminary and co-founder of Van der Graaf Generator, will return with the new solo album From The Trees on 3 November. Once again I play and sing all the parts on the disc. The group reformed in 1975 and he continued to record both with them and as a solo artist. Hammill will play five solo dates in Japan in October followed by seven in Italy in November. He will then play at the IB Expo show in Halmstad, Sweden, on 25 November. No shows are currently planned for Van der Graaf Generator, but he notes: 2018 may be a different matter, without making any promises at this stage.

Peter Joseph Andrew Hammill (born 5 November 1948) is an English singer-songwriter. He is a founder member of the progressive rock band Van der Graaf Generator.

In 2012, he was recognised with the Visionary award at the first Progressive Music Awards.
Peter Hammill's first solo album since 2014's hugely ambitious. represents a return to a more intimate style of music. The songs on From the Trees are mostly based on single piano, guitar and vocal parts designed for live performance. Consequently the overdubbing is textural (supportive guitars, a central spine of bass, synth and string washes, multiple voices - backing, harmony, choral - behind the main one). The characters who pave their fretful way through these songs are in general facing up to or edging in towards twilight. This is a brilliant new album by Peter Hammill.
