Watch Steve Winwood’s New Live Video for “Back In The High Life Again”

On September 1st, Steve Winwood will release his first ever live album as a solo artist, a 2CD/4LP collection sourced from Winwood’s personal archives of live performances.

The 23-song tracklist, hand picked by Winwood, includes the 1986 “Back in the High Life Again,” the official video for which can be seen below.

“I wrote this song with Will Jennings and it was the first song of mine that featured mandolin which I played,” says Winwood. “I remember being told that they used it to wake up the astronauts one morning.”

Winwood Greatest Hits Live features previously unreleased material touching on all aspects of his extensive catalog, including contemporary arrangements of the music he created with the Spencer Davis Group, Traffic, Blind Faith, and his solo recordings. The collection channels R&B, Jazz, Funk, Classic Rock, Pop and Folk, highlighting Winwood’s unique ability to fuse multiple genres into a singular, cohesive musical expression.
