For Immediate Release
Hawkwind Legend Nik Turner Releases New Single & Video
“Fallen Angel STS-51-L” From His Forthcoming New Album
Los Angeles, CA – In the spirit of such classic tracks as “Master Of The Universe” and “Silver Machine”, legendary Hawkwind member Nik Turner will be releasing a new single “Fallen Angel STS-51-L” digitally onand a limited edition 7-inch vinyl (only 500 pressed) on July 14th. Making this event even more exciting, a mind-bending video will accompany the single featuring footage from Nik's recent performance at The Echoplex in Los Angeles! The single begins the countdown to the launch of Turner's highly anticipated full-length album, Space Gypsy, which will feature guest appearances by Steve Hillage of Gong and former Hawkwind bandmate Simon House!
Nik Turner was a founding member of Hawkwind during what has been considered their most commercially successful and critically acclaimed period from 1970 to 1976. He wrote/co-wrote some of the group's most popular songs such as “Brainstorm” and “Master Of The Universe”, which was recently used in an ad campaign for Ford's new B-Max car. Turner also made a rare U.S. appearance at this year's SXSW festival with his new band, which includes former UK Sub Nicky Garratt and Jürgen Engler of German industrial band Die Krupps. The band entered the studio to record the new full-length album shortly after.
Of the first offering from the new album, Nik Turner says, “This single is the epitome of epiphanic, orgasmic, cathartic embodiment of my space dreams, become one man's reality, exploding into space. Expect lots more on this awesome album”.
Nick Deriso of Something Else Reviews says, “ 'Fallen Angel STS-51-L' is prog rock for those who want to go to the very edge of the universe, then peer so far out that you risk falling ass over teakettle into inky blackness.”

Actually, really like this single. And just the mention of Stevie Hillside makes me think I may have to invest when the album comes out !
Help me I'm falling!
