The new video for the single “Lost (My Guardian)” by the late Ken Hensley is launched today January 8, 2021. Taken from his forthcoming new album “My Book Of Answers,” “Lost (My Guardian)” is the first track to be released from Hensley’s collaboration with Russian fan Vladimir Emelin whose poems have been turned into an album’s worth of songs, a series of videos, a concert and an illustrated lyric book (available later this year). “My Book Of Answers” is to be released on March 5, 2021 as a CD/DVD and Vinyl Album, through Cherry Red Records.

Drawing on the strong faith of both Hensley and Emelin, “Lost (My Guardian)” is a spiritual quest, as they search for a light in the darkness:
I’m lost, out here in Neverland
I’m lost, just a man without a plan
I’m lost, I’m doing all I can
But the winds of fate are hard
And I’m lost without my guardian tonight
The track is driven along with a strong riff, as Hensley calls on his half century of creating Classic Rock, while there is a vulnerability in his voice reflecting the struggle Hensley says he had to find his own identity following his departure, after 10 years, from Rock legends Uriah Heep.
Speaking just days before his untimely death in November 2020, Hensley said: “I lived in America for twenty years after I left Uriah Heep and I really needed time to rediscover myself, get rid of my drug habit and see if there was anything left of a human being in there after my life had been buried in Uriah Heep for ten and a half years. It took a long time to get there but I got there in the end.”
My Book Of Answers is released on March 5, 2021 as a CD/DVD and Vinyl Album through Cherry Red Records.
