Trevor Rabin is set to release his new solo album Rio on October 6.
Rio is named after Rabin’s granddaughter and the album art features his own painting. It follows the 2012 Jacaranda which features instrumental tracks, while Rio will include Rabin’s vocal performance since 1989 “Can’t Look Away” which was released during his tenure with Yes. The record will be available to pre-order starting on August 4 in several different formats.
Rabin is best known as a member of the British prog-rock band between 1983 and 1994 and 1995 and appeared on the albums 90125, Big Generator, Union, and Talk. Eventually, he made his career as a prolific film score composer and producer which includes the score in films Con Air, Armageddon, Gone in 60 Seconds, Rock Star, and many more.
The rocker’s upcoming solo album will be released on InsideOut Music. Head of the label, Tom Waber said:
“Working with Trevor is a big bucket list moment for me and the label. I became a fan of his signature writing style at the beginning of the 80s and have been following him ever since. He is one of the true greats in Rock Music. ‘Rio’ is everything we could have hoped for and more!”
While Rabin said about the album:
“Over the past ten years I was having ideas, concepts that I couldn’t implement due to my busy schedule. To be honest, those years flew by in a flurry. I knew that this was the time, and once I found my momentum I worked on the album 24/7.”
