After the great success of their “Senki madara” album, Hungarian Proggers Yesterdays are now finally back with their 4 th album “Saint-Exupéry álma” (“Saint-Exupéry’s Dream”).

The new work appears as a music-biographical concept album, which addresses the world-famous story “Le Petit Prince” (“The Little Prince”) by French author Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (to whom the album title is dedicated) and his plane crash in the Libyan Desert in 1935. Although the idea for this album is already 15 years old, the planning and completion of the 74-minute long player only took about one year.

Shortly before starting production the band surprisingly faced loss of their long lasting keyboardist Enyedi Zsolt. This way, the album becomes a kind of allegory of his death at the same time. It was him who had the idea for the album title and is now leaving an artistic legacy as well as his own homage with us. For one last time his synth sounds remain with the title “A méreg” which comes from an old jam session forming the core of this composition.

The success of the previous album “Senki madara” with the more obvious 70’s sounds made the band go down this musical road even further. So “Saint-Exupéry álma” is for sure the band’s most progressive album to this point and not only because of its concept approach but mostly for its heavy Yes and Genesis influences off this period. Apart from that, longer pieces, recurring themes and motifs, virtuoso instrumental playing, sophisticated changes in rhythm and vocal fugues are also characteristic.

The special sound lives above all from its authenticity through the exclusive use of true and contemporary instruments such as Moogs, Mellotrons, a Hammond organ and a piano, which was specially recorded in the Transylvanian Károlyi Castle. There are no virtual instruments and no quantization on the record – everything you hear is real!

In addition, Yesterdays also stays with their audiophile tradition on this album as well. The music is not compressed, it breathes, is dynamic and transparent. And: it should be heard loud!
