May 29, 2020

Former Yes singer Jon Anderson’s 2019 solo album, 1000 Hands, is getting a new lease on life, thanks to Blue Élan Records. The album, Anderson’s first release via his new partnership with the Los Angeles-based label, will be available digitally as well as on CD and as a deluxe 180-gram double vinyl package on July 31.

“I’ve spent long periods of time making some records, but I’ve never taken a journey quite like this one,” says Anderson. “To say that 1000 Hands has been a long time in coming would be quite an understatement, but I’m thrilled that it’s finally a reality and that my fans will now be able to hear it. And I think they’ll be delighted to hear music that’s timeless. It’s one of the best things I’ve ever done.”

Of the label’s new signing, Blue Élan President Connor Pasich commented, “To have an artist of Jon Anderson’s caliber as part of our label family is exciting for all of us and to be able to be part of his musical legacy is priceless.”
