LINK: Jon Anderson at work on new studio album with former Union-era Yes collaborator

As a much talked-about project featuring Yes alums Jon Anderson, Trevor Rabin and Rick Wakeman continues to percolate, Anderson is hard at work on his next solo album.
The former co-founding Yes frontman, who released the well-received Survival and Other Stories last year, tells Steve DellaSala of Audioholics that he is collaborating with Jonathan Elias — who co-wrote seven tracks on Yes’ 1991 album Union.
Those sessions, which have been taking place over the last few months in between other engagements, represent the first time that Anderson has worked in an actual studio for some two decades, he says. Survival and Other Stories was constructed via file sharing over the internet.
That’s likely the way that the oft-delayed Anderson-Rabin-Wakeman project would be handled, Anderson tells DellaSala — if and when it comes to pass — since each remains so busy in their post-Yes careers.
Wakeman, who is releasing a lavish new reissue of his early 1970s solo album Journey to the Centre of the Earth, was a member of Yes five different times over four decades — from 1971-1974 and 1976-1980, and then 1991-1992 and 1995-1997; and then, finally, over a period from 2002-2008.

What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
