Less than a year after his collaboration with Jean-Luc Ponty saw the light of day, former Yes frontman Jon Anderson teams up with Flower Kings leader Roine Stolt on a new album, Invention Of Knowledge, which drops on on June 24 via InsideOut.

The music was recorded with assistance from keyboardists Tom Brislin and Lalle Larsson, bassists Jonas Reingold and Michael Stolot, drummer Felix Lehrmann, vocalists Daniel Gildenlow, Nad Sylvan, Anja Obermayer, Maria Rerych and Kristina Westas

Anderson had this to say about the project: “Music is always the driving force in my life – working with such a wonderful musician as Roine made the creation of this album very unique.”

Stolt added: “We’ve been inventing as we go along. Jon is an endless source of new ideas. It’s been a very interesting and rewarding time and the result is just insanely detailed.”


  1. Sounds like an interesting collaboration. I've never owned any music by the Flower Kings, but I used to enjoy hearing them when they were played on the AOL radio prog rock station. I hear elements of both Yes and the Kings in the snippets available in your post.

  2. Roine Stolt is also a member of Transatlantic (with Neal Morse, Mike Portnoy and Pete Trewevas).

    A lot of Yes fans still clamor for Anderson's return, but I commend him for moving forward.
