Magenta's Robert Reed Working On Sanctuary II

(Prog) Magenta mastermind Robert Reed has begun work on the follow-up to solo album Sanctuary. And although it has a working title of Sanctuary II, neither the name nor the material he's already written might make the final cut.

The 2014 title was his personal tribute to Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells and saw him playing all the instruments himself. Reed tells Prog: "At the moment the album has two long pieces and I have a few ideas for some shorter tracks. I've really gone off the idea of long tracks at the moment - especially as the music is quite dense.

"I've been writing and demoing for a few months and finally i got enough of a structure to start recording properly. But the way I work means it's yet to be seen how much will survive. I really like every second to count. If something's not working I'll erase it."

He's also planning to perform Sanctuary live in the coming months. Read more here.
