    The original lineup of '80s supergroup Asia has begun working on a new studio album. Guitarist Steve Howe told Billboard.com, "We're starting the process of recording, and we feel good about that—partly because we're getting on well and we think, 'Why not?'

    "We're trying to make an album that isn't terribly predictable for us," Howe added. "We're not doing retrospective music; we're certainly going to try to show our histories but still have a slightly more diverse range."

    In its original incarnation, Asia featured members of King Crimson, Yes and Emerson, Lake & Palmer and released two hit albums, 1982's self-titled debut and 1983's Alpha, before breaking up. "We like the chemistry now more than ever," the guitarist says. "This (reunion) is proof there was a great chemistry originally.... The fact it got messed up was our fault. We felt we owed it to each other to put it right."
