Focus 12




Legendary Dutch progressive rockers Focus return with their 12th studio album, recorded in the world- renowned Wisseloord Studio in the Netherlands. The majority of the album has been written by Thijs van Leer who, at age 75, still rises at 4.30 am every day to work on his latest compositions. The unstoppable Pierre van der Linden takes up Focus drumming duties, as he has done for more than 50 years. This is the first Focus album to have been produced by band members Udo Pannekeet and Menno Gootjes – who also contribute compositions.

The album features a first for a Focus album: a completely improvised piece, recorded as it spontaneously took place in the studio. Once again, Focus showcase their long-standing association with artist Roger Dean – whose beautiful artwork graces the packaging.

Founded by Thijs van Leer, Focus have been at the forefront of the progressive music movement since 1969. Their song Hocus Pocus has become a dearly-loved, worldwide prog anthem while also being sampled by rap musicians, used in coverage for the Winter Olympics, sound-tracking adverts for Nike and appearing in Hollywood movies such as Baby Driver, Robocop and Onward! among others.
