(Photo Credit: Photo: Rob Shanahan)Yes has revealed that it's begun working on a new studio album, which will be the group's first with its latest lead singer, Jon Davison.  The legendary prog-rockers posted a series of photos on their Facebook page last week that shows the entire band hunkered down in a Los Angeles recording studio with producer Roy Thomas Baker, whose impressive resume includes most of Queen's classic 1970s albums.

In a recent interview with ABC News Radio, Yes drummer Alan White showered praise on Davison, who officially joined the group's lineup in February 2012.

"The band is playing really exceptionally well with [Jon], and he's really rose to the occasion," White declared.  "His voice is absolutely phenomenal, he really takes care of it and takes care of himself, and is right on the ball every night.  And, it's bouncing off the rest of the band."

In addition, White revealed that Davison, who also fronts the band Glass Hammer, has been contributing song ideas to the new project.

...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
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.
