1980 Jon Anderson – Song of Seven

anderson-jon-1980Song of Seven is the second solo album by Yes lead singer Jon Anderson, released in 1980, and his first to utilize an actual band (the New Life Band).
Song of Seven was released during Anderson’s first hiatus from Yes and supported by his first solo tour. “Some Are Born”, “Days”, “Everybody Loves You” and “Hear It” were originally written and demoed during the Tormato sessions. The demo versions from these sessions were included as bonus tracks on the 2004 CD reissue of Tormato, however, the arrangements recorded on Song of Seven draw more on Celtic and R&B influences.
