Steve Howe, the band’s longest serving member, guitarist and producer of the new album talked in an official statement about the new album. “This is a very important album for the band. We kept the continuity in the approach we established on The Quest, but we haven’t repeated ourselves. That was the main thing. As YES did in the seventies from one album to another, we’re growing and moving forward. In later years, YES often got going but then didn’t do the next thing. This album is demonstrative of us growing and building again.”
“When we delivered everything, and they were just getting the vinyl and everything into production for manufacturing, we were still very much in that creative zone. That belief that Thomas had in us really meant a lot,” Steve Howe said.
