Prog icons YES release a brand-new mix of their album Fly From Here – Return Trip ahead of a Manchester gig at the Bridgewater Hall.
Due for release on 25 March the album features the Drama line-up and new lead vocals by Trevor Horn, to coincide with their 50th anniversary celebrations.
The original 2011 release of Fly From Here featured the band members who appeared on Drama: Chris Squire, Steve Howe, Alan White, Geoff Downes, plus Benoit David on lead vocals with Trevor Horn in the role of Producer.
Fly From Here – Return Trip also contains a previously unreleased song Don’t Take No for an Answer, which was recorded in 2011 with Steve Howe on lead vocals as well as the full length version of Hour of Need.
The new release of the album was developed as a labour of love for all involved with vocals recorded over a two year period. Trevor began re-recording the lead vocals the day after he guested with YES at the Royal Albert Hall in 2016 and within 24 hours the rest of the band had joined him at his studio.
Speaking about the album, Trevor Horn commented, “I really enjoyed listening to Alan and Chris playing together again. Finishing off the album was a labour of love.”
