Yes Debut Latest Song, 'In a World of Our Own' From New Album
8
A little over a week before the official release of their latest studio album, progressive rock legends Yes are offering fans a sneak peak with the debut of the song, "In a World of Our Own," Ultimate Classic Rock reports

The new track from the band's upcoming LP titled "Heaven and Earth" was released with a dazzling lyric video for listeners to follow along with. This latest video is the latest in a series of previews offered by the band following the release of "Believe Again," "Light of the Ages," "Step Beyond" and "The Game."

Earlier this year we spoke with Yes' enigmatic guitar player Steve Howe who described the thought that went into the group's latest record. "I don't know whether it's a concept record in the true sense, but basically Roger Dean and I were talking about different things and sometimes it helps to get Roger fired up about ideas that we can draw from," he said. "In a way, the parallel of saying 'Heaven and Earth' is the same as saying good and bad, yin and yang, up and down, left and right. They're two extremes, but I think the way Roger and I liked it was that in fact the Earth is a physical place where you can measure stuff and you can do quantum physics."

"Heaven and Earth" is due for release on Tuesday, July 22 on Frontier Records. To coincide with the album's release the band are kicking off a 35-date North American tour starting on July 15 in Washington DC.

    In the recording studio: Squire: "Studio time is expensive." Howe: "We still have a few minutes to add to this track." Squire: "We could keep it in 4/4 time and just repeat the chorus a bunch?" Howe: "Right. Next song."

    How can this be called progressive rock? Not that there's anything wrong with that, but this could have been released 40 years ago and sound contemporary.

    Not amusing, in my opinion. But, Yes have gone to the bin since the mid-80s for me, so it's not like I'm disappointed.

    Fly From Here was a worthy addition to their catalogue but this sounds very poppy...it's good but it's not really memorable.

    I was excited for this, I love Yes and Fly from here was a good album IMO but this doesn't really jump out at me.

    Not bad, but it doesn't sound as good as their last album, which was absolutely great in my opinion. Pretty mediocre by Yes-standards.
