Sherwood announces career retrospective


Yes bassist Billy Sherwood has released a career retrospective titled Collection and made his 2014 album Divided By One available on CD for the first time.

He took over bass duties in Yes when Chris Squire began cancer treatment earlier this year and continues to play with the band following Squire’s death.

Regarding his Collection release, Sherwood says: “It’s made up of tracks from each of my previous solo records. In addition, there are two bonus tracks – one is a new yet unreleased track and the other is a cover I did of Sting’s song I Hung My Head.”

Sherwood’s seventh solo album Divided By One was released on digital formats last year – but a CD version has been launched following requests from fans.

Both albums will go on general sale on October 30 via Cherry Red Records but they’re available now if ordered directly through Sherwood’s website.

Sherwood signed a deal with Frontiers Records in April for his upcoming release Citizens. It features contributions from a range of artists including Squire, Rick Wakeman, Steve Hackett, John Wetton, Jordan Rudess, Tony Kaye, Geoff Downes, Steve Morse, Steve Hillage and more.

Yes continue their Summer Tour with Toto on August 21 in Mississippi.

Prog magazine pays tribute to Chris Squire in the latest edition, out now in print, digital and via TeamRock+.
