Mabel Greer’s Toyshop Return for New Album

Cult psych-rocker Mabel Greer’s Toyshop, which sprouted the first shoots of Yes, have reunited and announced a new album entitled New Way Of Life.

New Way Of Life is about authenticity without compromise - a unique and very special album. At once distinctly different from all twenty-one Yes studio albums, it still has unmistakeable early Mabel Greer’s Toyshop (MGT) vibes from the time Chris Squire, Peter Banks, Tony Kaye and Jon Anderson were in the band.

The album also demonstrates the evolution of the group from when it was formed in the sixties to how life experiences have since shaped the music. “We hope that YES followers everywhere enjoy this offering. It’s a piece of history brought to life by the technology of today. The album includes new versions of old classics like Beyond & Before, and a whole lot of new music too," says singer, guitarist and songwriter Clive Bayley.

The 11-track album has been co-produced by YES producer and former member Billy Sherwood who also plays keyboards alongside Tony Kaye and bass alongside Hugo Barré, and combines Bayley’s soulful vocals and wailing guitar solos with Tony Kaye’s distinctive keyboards.
