News received via UK's 'Prog' magazine (post by Martin Kielty):

"Curved Air will release their first album to feature new music since 1976 when North Star goes on sale next month.

The 14-track record features seven fresh tracks alongside a collection of re-recordings and covers. The digital single Colder Than A Rose In Snow was released last year and another, Stay Human, is coming soon.

Original members Sonja Kristina and Florian Pilkington-Miksa were rejoined by Air Cut-era guitarist Kirby Gregory for studio sessions, alongside Paul Sax, Robert Norton and Chris Harris.

North Star will be released via Cherry Red on March 17 and it’s available for pre-order now: Curved Air tour the UK in their own right in April following a series of shows with the Strawbs and Martin Turner – and Strawbs mainman Dave Cousins is hoping vocalist Kristina will guest with his band once again."

Wow a lot of legendary prog bands are coming out of hibernation this decade! I'm curious to know what they sound like now?

The last time I looked no one had posted a review on PA. Really can't decide whether to get it or not.
