Yes’ Trevor Rabin Release New Song “Big Mistakes”
via InsideOutMusicTV / Youtube
Trevor Rabin has released his first single “Big Mistakes,” taken from his upcoming solo album, Rio.
In a press release, Rabin described the song as “essentially about surviving my late teens [and] 20s, hence the lyric, ‘We played in the fire, we danced in the rain / Up all night we made big mistakes.’ I should have called the song ‘I Can’t Believe I’m Alive.’”
“Big Mistakes” features Lou Molino from Rabin’s Yes offshoot band with Jon Anderson and Rick Wakeman on drums, while the rest of the instruments are all played by Rabin.
Rio marks Rabin’s sixth solo album and is named after his granddaughter, while the album art features his own painting. It follows the 2012 Jacaranda which features instrumental tracks, while the upcoming album will include Rabin’s vocal performance since 1989 “Can’t Look Away” which was released during his tenure with Yes.
“Over the past 10 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.”
The musician 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.
Rio is already available to pre-order in several different formats and will be released on Oct. 6.
