Jon Anderson’s Olympic Tribute
Ex-Yes singer, and cover star of the latest edition of Prog, Jon Anderson, continues his resurgence into the progressive rock world with the release of new single Race To The End, which also serves as Anderson’s tribute to the London Olympic Games.
The song, which is currently available on iTunes here, is based around Vangelis’ 1981 Chariots Of Fire theme, with additional lyrics by Anderson, and had previously been released as a 1982 single collaboration between Vangelis and his old Aphrodite’s Child singer Demis Roussos. A video of Anderson’s latest version, which also features Vangelis’ haunting Chariots Of Fire theme, has been released on You Tube.
Jon Anderson appears at London’s Sadler’s Wells Theatre on August 8, where he will be appearing at Miro Zbirka and the Slovak Symphony Orchestra. Tickets can be purchased online here.
