2023 marks the 50th anniversary of the band Kansas — and the esteemed progressive/rock band will celebrate with a big new retrospective collection.

Scheduled for release on Dec. 16, just a few weeks short of the start of the new year, Another Fork In The Road – 50 Years Of Kansas features a specially curated selection of songs from across the Kansas catalog, as well as a new recording of “Can I Tell You,” carried out by the band’s current lineup (Phil Ehart, bassist/vocalist Billy Greer, vocalist/keyboardist Ronnie Platt, violinist/guitarist David Ragsdale, keyboardist/vocalist Tom Brislin, and original guitarist Richard Williams.)

“We are really honored by the commitment that InsideOut Music has put into ‘Another Fork in the Road.,” said Ehart. “This is far more than just another greatest hits album. ‘Another Fork in the Road’ is an in-depth representation of the evolving and winding musical journey of the band KANSAS that’s been 50 years in the making.”
