    2nd single is All Connected, due 26??? April

    There's a lovely new interview with Davison at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8QuxkoRr7Qc , including the news that "All Connected" (at full length) is the second single and due "in two days" (but I don't know when the interview was conducted).

    Great interview by Barry at Classic Album Review.

    Juano says that again AC started with Billy's musical ideas and literal lyrics that Juano then said he went metaphysical on. Billy and Juano take turns singin' lead. Starts with Steve's steel reachin' a crescendo. Then lots of twists and turns (sound familiar: CftS).

    9 minute single decision championed by InsideOut supremo Thomas Webber.

    Elsewhere:

    Livin' Out Their Dream:
    A satire on married life and the pressure to be insta-perfect on social media. And the Dowe Index is back!!!! ( Davison+Howe close octave harmony singin'. Barry couldn't pick who had sung 😂)

    Mirror to the Sky:
    Steve's music events and 1 lyric, "Dreams of a sky with no fire" started Juano off to write more music and Emily's lyric at Brighton beach.

    Juano says legacy is like THE MUSEUM OF YES and the band now are just addin' new galleries.

    Cool chat. Barry asks the right questions. Was MttS a concept album? Will they do Relayer? TFTO? Tormato?

      Davison also clears up whether the band will be playing all of Relayer! Let me quote his exact words...

      "all I could say is... yes, no, maybe so... I can't say yes on that yes, just a maybe.”

      So, that's that all cleared up.

          Thanks for spotting that - have edited.

          It's tiring work!

              It's a long way off, but my guess is they'll play To Be Over only. 😏

                Great to hear Jon Davison be so positive about the future of new Yes music, citing The Quest as the starting point for this version of Yes' new output:

                "The Quest gave us our stride and gave us a confidence and familiarity working with one another so in that way The Quest was the impetus for Mirror to the Sky and everything else that will now follow."
                The Definitive YES Albums

                -The Yes Album-Fragile-Close to the Edge-Tales From Topographic Oceans-
                -Relayer-Going for the One-Drama-90125-Big Generator-Talk-
                -The Ladder-Magnification-Fly From Here-The Quest-Mirror to the Sky-

                  Yeah… Since he didn’t deny the rumors about them dropping Relayer, it sounds like they are dropping it. Also sounds like they might not actually reschedule all the dates in the tour, since he mentioned them trying to reschedule dates in “England” but didn’t say that the whole tour is being rescheduled. Behind the scenes, their attempts to reschedule the tour must not be going well.

                    In the United States, most established professors at prestigious universities would foist that sort of thing off on teacher's assistants. Not so in the UK?
                    "A lot of the heavier conversations I was having with Chris toward the end were about his desire for this thing to go forward. He kept reiterating that to me. [...] He kept telling me, 'No matter what happens, Yes needs to continue moving forward and make great music. So promise me that that's something you want to do.'. And I have to keep making music. It's just what I do. [...] I'm a fan of the band and I want to see it thrive and that means new music." -Billy Sherwood

                      No. An established professor in the UK isn't above fillin' ink in the students ink wells before class. It's called humility, sir. Good day to you, sir! 😉

                        I can confirm that I have not gotten a new date for the date of June 3 this year that was supposed to happen over here in the Netherlands., so far.

                          The US and UK contexts are somewhat different. It also varies a lot from professor to professor, depending what subject they teach, what university they're in. The module in question, about a third is marked by me, a third by someone at an associate professor level, and a third by a teaching assistant.

                            Professor is an honorary academic term only in UK, we are lecturers, not all called professors like USA. Tends to be attached to those doing research especially if they bring in lots of research grants and acclaim for the university. We do the marking we etach. I have 85 x 2 assignments to be marked for one module and 20 x 2 for another. A few years back you could add another 40 x 2 to that!

                              Sometimes the lights all shining on me, other times I can barely see.
                              Lately it occurs to me what a long strange trip it’s been.
