Yes fans who miss Jon Anderson will breathe a sigh of relief to know that their hero is active once again and busier than ever with a spring tour rolling out with Jean-Luc Ponty and Jon has recorded an album with Swedish rock guitarist Roine Stolt called Invention Of Knowledge. The tour with Ponty begins in Tuscon, Arizona on April 28th and ends in Quebec City on May 28th with no Toronto date this time since they played the Danforth Music Hall back in November.
In June, Anderson is set to release the album with Stolt, whom he met during a performance at the 2014 Progressive Nation at Sea Cruise and they started collaborating shortly after. Their press release states four songs on the record clock in at approximately 65 minutes which people will compare to the long Yes epics but Stolt states,” It is not aiming at being new Yes music; just new music, modern and classical, rock…grooving and floating.”
The album drops June 24th.
