In a statement about the forthcoming LP, the eight-track record is described as a continuation of their classic prog sound, but also featuring a “timelessly fresh and innovative” edge.
The album sleeve has been designed once again by long time collaborator Roger Dean, and it will be the first album recorded with vocalist Jon Davison.
Davison last month admitted recording sessions had been completed “just in time,” but said there was enough overflow material that could be used in a later release.
He said: “We were doubling up in the studio. Chris Squire and I were working on background vocals and Steve Howe was finishing guitars. Geoff Downes was in Wales, Alan White was in Seattle and they were both sending tracks.
“We were just kind of throwing everything in at the last minute, then we only had two or three days before we had to start this tour.”
Heaven & Earth is due for release on the 7th of July and the full track listing is as follows:
‘In A World Of Our Own’
‘Light Of The Ages’
‘It Was All We Knew’
