The full song can be purchased on iTunes.

Jon Davison on  Believe Again

The lyrical theme of Believe Again touches on self-discovery, developing the awareness of collective unity, and the comfort acquired by possessing faith. The song is a call to embrace the concept that no matter how far we may go astray from our higher purpose, it’s never too late to find redemption in the reality of divine love that is the undercurrent of all existence. We become aware of this sacred flow by stilling our minds and hearts through such practices as affirmation and meditation – the ‘empty space’ referred to in the lyric.

Cool. Sounds good from such a small sample but as a wannabe fantasy artist, I was more interested in seeing how the artwork was developed.

Not that impressed to be honest, I'll need to hear more of the album before I think about buying it.

Not the most compelling clip to use if they wanted to stir real enthusiasm for the release. I'm more interested in what the Live From Manitcore Hall (Emerson/Lake) album will sound like. Anyone know if it's a live or studio recording?
Thank you for supporting independently produced music

I like the song---been listening to it several times---wish it had got a little more crazy at some point in the instrumental part----and I feel like all Yes of the past 20 years---too much singing and not enough hot instrumental breaks.Tongue

Judgement suspended until official releaseErmm

It's a live album. In fact I saw this show in Montreal when they were touring. It's basically a duo- keyboards/bass show with some drums sample to fill the void. It was an OK show at best.. The best part was when they played Tarkus and Emerson played with his big synth. I must say that I'm not a big fan of ELP so maybe my opinion is not so accurate haha.

Hmm...I like Davison's lead vocals quite a bit, but Howe seems nearly invisible.  Better than anything from "Fly From Here" in my opinion.  

I'm looking forward to hearing the entire effort, I hope Howe has one last crazy solo left in the bag!!  

Like this one (during Ritual, 1976)....God he was amazing back in the "Relayer" years!!

^^^Yes no one has played guitar like that in a rock genre --he was amazing--unique and powerful---and agree I sorta like the song but some missed opportunities on playing some crazy stuff.

Thin. Not impressed, but I really wanted to be blown away, so maybe I've set my sights too high.

It sounds more like Yes should sound like. I like it but then I am primed to like it as I enjoy Davison's contribution to Glass Hammer.

Yes' music since 90125 is too commercial for me. I've  listened to this song a few times already and I dont think it superb, but it isnt awful. I still dont know if I will preorder the album but on Wednesday they gonna share next song and then I'll probably decide.

I was going to wait but next weeks release is by Squire and could be more commercial than thisConfused--who am I kidding, I will buy the album but nothing Yes has done since 1977 has been a great or perfectly satisfying experience for me.
