Here's the new Asia album



Phoenix Asia's official website has released the album art for the band's upcoming disc -- "Phoenix."

The artwork was designed by Roger Dean, who handled the iconic art for six of the Asia's earlier albums. The album -- the first one by the band's original members since "Alpha" in 1983 -- is set for release on April 11.

Meanwhile, drummer Carl Palmer is recovering after a heart operation performed very recently. A stent was inserted into an artery in his heart to help prevent any narrowing of the vessel.

"I am happy to say the procedure was a complete success and I am already feeling better each day," Palmer said in an announcement on the band's official website. Asia's world tour begins in March.
