Former Yes legend Jon Anderson has shared a video for his new track “Where Does Music Come From,” a song from 1000 Hands, which is set to be re-released on July 31, via Blue Élan Records.
The LP, originally titled Uzlot when Anderson began working on the album three decades ago, was released last year.
Now, 1000 Hands, produced by by Michael T. Franklin, will be out in various formats, including CD, digitally and a special deluxe 180-gram double vinyl version.
“‘WDMCF’ originates from me singing the first ideas that come to mind each morning. I start by creating vocal rhythmic sounds, very much like the Pygmies in Bambuti and Burundi in West Africa who go foraging and hunting and sing all the time. They sing like the sounds around them…insects, birds, frogs etc.,” Anderson says about the new single.
“I always dream and think that my best work is yet to come, or there would be no point in creating at all. I just feel so energized, happily surrounded by this world of music.”
Calling the album “one of the best things I’ve ever done,” Anderson added: “I’ve spent long periods of time making some records, but I’ve never taken a journey quite like this one.
“To say that 1000 Hands has been a long time in coming would be quite an understatement, but I’m thrilled that it’s finally a reality and that my fans will now be able to hear it. And I think they’ll be delighted to hear music that’s timeless.”
