On 25th March prog icons, YES, will release a brand-new mix of their album “Fly From Here – Return Trip”, featuring the Drama line-up and new lead vocals by Trevor Horn, to coincide with their 50th Anniversary celebrations. “Fly From Here – Return Trip” can be exclusively pre-ordered via Pledge Music from this locationThe album 2011 original release featured four of the band members who appeared on “Drama”Chris SquireSteve HoweAlan WhiteGeoff Downes, plus Benoit David on lead vocals with Trevor Horn in the role of producer.

Over the last two years, Trevor Horn, vocalist on 1980’s “Drama” album and producer of the band’s biggest selling album “90125”, has been working, not just re-recording the lead vocals but also adding additional overdubs by other band members, as well as remixing parts of the album.  He began re-recording the lead vocals the day after he guested with YES at the Royal Albert Hall in 2016 and within 24 hours the rest of the band had joined him at his studio. The package contains personal liner notes from Horn and a different cover from the original. Trevor Horn says: “I really enjoyed listening to Alan and Chris playing together again. Finishing off the album was a labour of love.”

Two further bonuses await buyers of the album: a previously unreleased song, “Don’t Take No for an Answer” recorded in 2011, with Steve Howe on lead vocals (his first ever lead vocal on a Yes track since joining the band in 1970) and the full-length version of “Hour of Need”, a Japan only bonus track.

“It is great to have the original ‘Drama’ lineup playing ‘Fly From Here’ plus several other songs Trevor had a big part in writing,” comments Steve HoweGeoff Downes adds: “It’s quite amazing what Trevor has done with the album and the way it has turned out. It is most refreshing and adds a whole new dimension to the original recordings from 2011. I think the fans will appreciate it as a genuine sequel to the ‘Drama’ album, and embrace it as a valuable part of our YES50 celebrations.”

An interview with Steve Howe and Geoff Downes on BBC Breakfast can be seen below. It has also been announced that Horn will join the band on stage during their two shows at the London Palladium in March 2018 which celebrate the band’s 50th anniversary.
