The song originated in March when the band were on tour promoting The Yes Album , travelling from Aberdeen to Glasgow after a gig in Aviemore , Scotland. We could only see the clouds because it was sheer straight up I remember saying, "Oh, the mountains—look! They're coming out of the sky! In August , Yes regrouped in London to prepare material for their fourth album, Fragile. Early into the sessions, keyboardist Tony Kaye was fired from the group over his lack of interest in learning more keyboards to expand the band's sound, and was replaced by Rick Wakeman.

The group then moved to Advision Studios in September to record Fragile with audio engineer Eddy Offord as their co-producer, using a track recording machine to layer their ideas at which point, Howe later said, "The song became pure magic". Howe recalled the track was originally "a guitar instrumental suite " and had a basic outline worked out when he first developed it.

They had played it through in rehearsal several times, but Squire recalled the group would make sure to "get the first two verses really good" and record from there. In its original form, the song began with the acoustic guitar, which Howe played on a Martin , but the group soon thought a more dramatic opening was needed.

Wakeman played the lowest E note on his grand piano with the E an octave higher which gave it "a fatter feel". Squire played his bass guitar parts with an overdub that was one octave higher using Howe's Gibson ES electric guitar and mixed with his bass track.

For the song's slower section, he plays a Minimoog synthesiser and flute sounds on a Mellotron which he said gave the section a " Strawberry Fields mood". Once the music tracks had been put down, Anderson entered the studio early one morning and recorded his lead vocals.
