Prior to his sudden passing this September, Virgil Howe, son of Yes guitarist Steve Howe, teamed up with his father to create a collaborative album Nexus. The album was finished before the Yestival Tour kicked off, but Yes canceled the remaining US dates of the tour following Howe’s death.

Still, the album is set for a November 17 release—something Steve Howe hopes will continue to carry on Virgil’s legacy. And just days before the album’s released, Steve shared a poignant new video for the album’s song “Leaving Aurora.” It’s a simple video that pays tribute to Virgil, showing Steve on guitar while cutting to clips and images of his youngest son.

Watch the video in its entirety below.
