Yes detail Heaven & Earth release

Yes have unveiled the cover art and tracklist for Heaven & Earth, their first album with vocalist Jon Davison.

The eight-track record is described as a continuation of their classic prog sound, but also featuring a “timelessly fresh and innovative” edge.

The sleeve art was once again created by long-time collaborator Roger Dean.

Davison last month admitted recording sessions had been completed “just in time,” but said there was enough overflow material that could be used in a later release.

He said: “We were doubling up in the studio. Chris Squire and I were working on background vocals and Steve Howe was finishing guitars. Geoff Downes was in Wales, Alan White was in Seattle and they were both sending tracks.

“We were just kind of throwing everything in at the last minute, then we only had two or three days before we had to start this tour.”

Yes just wound up their UK dates. Heaven & Earth, their 21st studio album, is expected on July 7.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
