Yes Reunite With Producer Trevor Horn for New Album — Exclusive News

Rob Shanahan

Quintessential prog-rockers Yes have announced that they have reunited with legendary producer Trevor Horn for their highly anticipated new album, ‘Fly From Here.’ The album marks the band’s first studio album in ten years.

The album originated from a conversation between Horn and Yes bassist Chris Squire, who re-discovered the song ‘Fly From Here’ and realized that it had never been recorded in a studio. “Chris and I were talking one evening about the song ‘Fly From Here’ that we never recorded,” explains Horn. “I said I was prepared to spend two weeks with Yes recording that song. When I arrived in America to record it, I was taken prisoner by the band and only allowed my freedom again in return for producing the whole album. It was an offer I couldn’t refuse!”

‘Fly From Here’ retains Yes’ signature brand of mysticism and large-scale compositions. The record contains plenty of the complex arrangements, beautiful harmonies, and heavy riffs the band is known for. “The new album represents the best of Yes from the ’70s and the ’80s with a current twist,” said Squire.

Keyboardist Geoff Downes, who originally joined the band for 1980′s ‘Drama,’ has also re-joined the band for the new album. Yes now consists of guitarist Steve Howe, bassist Chris Squire, drummer Alan White, keyboardist Downes, and lead singer Benoit David.

With total sales of over 30 million albums, Yes are widely considered to be the pioneers of the prog-rock movement.

The group is also known for radio classics such as ‘Roundabout,’ a seminal hit that consistently appears on ‘the best songs of all time’ lists, and the Horn-produced hit ‘Owner of a Lonely Heart.’ The latter song reached the top of both the UK and US singles charts simultaneously.

‘Fly From Here’ will be released on Frontiers Records in July 2011. Noisecreep will soon reveal more details about the new album, as well as Yes’ plans for live performances.
