"Spectral Mornings" is the third release and the second post-Genesis album by guitarist Steve Hackett. This is also the first recording to feature Hackett's first true touring band consisting of his brother John Hackett on Flute, Guitar and bass pedals, long-time collaborator in keyboardist Nick Magnus, bassist/vocalist Dik Cadbury, drummer John Shearer and vocalist Peter Hicks. Lead vocals are provided by Hicks with harmonies by Hackett & Cadbury. Hackett himself sings lead on "The Ballad Of The Decomposing Man".

In 2005, "Spectral Mornings" was remastered and re-released by Hackett's Camino Records label. The new edition features updated liner notes and seven bonus tracks.
