Steve Howe, renowned guitarist known for his contributions in and around prog-rock masters Yes since he joined the band in 1970, has a new solo record in the works for later this year.
Titled Love Is, the record will be released on April 17 via BMG, detailed announced by Howe over the weekend on his official Facebook page:
My new solo album is titled LOVE IS.
It’s an equal balance of guitar instrumentals and songs, which presents a symmetric balance of the things I do.
I perform the lead vocals, electric, acoustic & steel guitars
plus occasional keyboards, percussion and bass guitar on the instrumentals.
I’m delighted to say that Jon “Juano” Davison of Yes sings harmony vocals and plays bass guitar on the songs, too. Dylan Howe drums on every track, showing his precision and forcefulness throughout.
After starting all the tracks at our own studio, Curtis Schwartz then expanded the possibilities–including recording Dylan–and developed the mixes before Simon Heyworth mastered the tunes for it’s release on the 17th April 2020 on BMG.
I look forward to sharing the album art once it’s ready.

Howe’s most recent release was 2017’s Nexus, a collaboration with his son, Virgil. Tragically, Virgil passed away two months before the album’s scheduled release.
