YES, premiered a lyric video for the lead single–“In A World Of Our Own”–off their new studio album, HEAVEN & EARTH (set for release July 22 in the U.S. on Frontiers Records). Check out the lyric video for “In A World Of Our Own” (penned by frontman Jon Davidson and bassist Chris Squire) here: http://tinyurl.com/or2odc4.
Having sold nearly 40 million albums in a career that has so far spanned more than four decades, HEAVEN & EARTH sees YES continuing with its tradition of symphonic progressive rock that remains timelessly fresh and innovative. The new album contains eight new tracks, each of which boasts the unique musicianship and craftsmanship that have come to be known as “the YES sound.” YES’ distinctive layered music, swirling arrangements, brilliant vocals and harmonies are all in abundance. For HEAVEN & EARTH, YES teamed up with legendary Grammy Award winner, Roy Thomas Baker (Queen, The Cars, Guns N’ Roses, Foreigner, Smashing Pumpkins, Alice Cooper, etc.), who handled the production and Billy Sherwood (Toto, Paul Rodgers, Air Supply, etc.) who mixed the album. Also onboard is long-time YES artist, the world-renowned Roger Dean, who again brings his masterful artistic creativity to the album’s cover art and packaging. HEAVEN & EARTH, available now for pre-order on Amazon (link here: http://smarturl.it/YES_Amz_Preorder), is an album sure to please both long-time and new YES fans. Fans who pre-order the album from iTunes (link here: http://bit.ly/HeavenEarth-iTunes)will receive instant downloads of “In A World Of Our Own” and “Believe Again”.
