Out on October 1

Yes has announced a new album titled “The Quest” which will arrive on October 1 via InsideOut Music/Sony Music. It’s their first collection of new material since 2014’s “Heaven and Earth” and it features 11 tracks on one disc and three extra tunes on a “bonus disc”. It’s slated for release in a variety of formats – digitally, vinyl, 5.1 Blu-ray, and CD.

“It is simply an honor for me to have the opportunity to bring together the band members in the development of a well-refined set of songs that capture the band’s true potential,” Steve Howe said in a statement. “Much of the music was written in late 2019 with the rest in 2020.”

“We commissioned several orchestrations to augment and enhance the overall sound of these fresh new recordings, hoping that our emphasis on melody,” he continued, “coupled with some expansive instrumental solo breaks, keeps up the momentum for our listeners.”

“I am delighted to welcome Yes to the label and am looking forward to seeing the reaction of the band’s fans to the new album,” label manager Thomas Waber added. “Being a long-time fan myself, I am really excited by the new material. Steve Howe managed to capture many of the important elements that we all love about Yes!”

Yes will also embark on a European tour that kicks off on May 22, 2022.
