Jon Anderson has tied up with former Counting Crows man Matt Malley to release a single which will aid three different charities.
Family Circle is described as a tribute to “our connection with our families and how our children keep us together, bonding our love of life.”
Former Yes frontman Anderson says: “Family Circle came together when Matt sent me his beautiful music earlier this year. I sang the lyric idea and sent it back to Matt, thanking him for the great energy. He added some more sounds and the haunting guitar solo.”
Malley adds: “Not only am I a fan of Jon’s voice, but I’m a fan of the fearless spiritual outlook that appears in all of his music. I sent the file up to Jon and it came back with his marvellous voice, lyrics – everything that brought the song to becoming fully realised.”
Anderson appears on United Progressive Fraternity’s debut album, out next month. He’s currently working with a new band on material co-written with jazz-fusion violinist Jean-Luc Ponty.
