New 15/06/2020

Yes guitarist Steve Howe has shared a lively instrumental song titled The Headlands.

The song features Howe playing almost every instrument - acoustic, electric and steel guitar, bass guitar, keyboards and percussion while his son Dylan plays the drums.

Composed and produced by Howe himself, the song is taken from his upcoming solo album, Love Is. Most of the tracks consist of instrumentals while the other half features Yes bandmate, Jon Davison, singing harmonies and on bass.

Available for pre-order now, Howe explained that the album title comes from his love of nature. "I called the album Love Is because it hints at the central idea that love is important but also love of the universe and the ecology of the world is very important."

"Alexander Humboldt went around the world and recognized we are destroying the planet, but that was 200 years ago!" he continued. "We are still destroying the planet and, I suppose, my songs show the yearning I have for the love of nature and how beauty, art and music all stem from nature. There is a theme about those things, love, beauty, ecology, nature and wonderful people."
