Magenta are excited to announce that they will release a version of the Yes classic Wonderous Stories as a download-only single, on Tigermoth Records,  on November 15th.

 

The song, which will come in three alternative versions, will be available to download from all normal download sites – including Amazon and  Itunes worldwide.  Rob Reed talks about the bands reasons for the release:

 

“We are often compared favourably to Yes, and many of our fans have been asking us to have a go at a Yes piece for a while.  We have been playing Wonderous Stories as part of our set during our recent run of acoustic gigs, and it was great fun to do and really well received, so we thought we’d take it into the studio and give it the full-band Magenta treatment.  We think that we’ve brought something new to the song while maintaining total respect for the original, and we really hope people enjoy it.”

 

Wonderous Stories, from the Going For the One album, was Yes’ biggest UK hit, reaching number 7 in September 1977.

 

The three versions of the song will be:

1.Wonderous Stories : Full Mix
2.Wonderous Stories : Instrumental Mix
3.Wonderous Stories : Acoustic Mix

 

The band have also produced a video for the song, and an excerpt can be seen below.  The complete video will be made available on the day of release.

Sounds interesting, I reckon they could do a good version. Annie Haslam did a reasonable job on "Turn of the Century".
