Wetton launches 2 records in March

Asia and UK vocalist John Wetton is releasing two albums this month – a live set and a double-disc anthology of his solo material.

The former King Crimson man, who’s been fronting prog icons UK on their final tour, will release both titles through Cherry Red.

The first, New York Minute, sees him performing many of the tracks that inspired him – some of which have never previously been available on record. It’s topped with his solo hit Battle Lines and Asia classic Heat Of The Moment.

Then comes The Studio Recordings Anthology, containing 32 tracks from six of his solo albums and featuring guest appearances by Robert Fripp, Steve Hackett, Geoff Downes, Steve Lukather and many others.

New York Minute is out this week while The Studio Recordings Anthology follows next week.
