|Yes singles chronology|
Yes guitarist and singer Trevor Rabin originally wrote the song for singer Stevie Nicks to perform; however, Yes drummer Alan White encouraged Rabin to let Yes record the song instead, which they did.
"Love Will Find a Way" was the fifth of six Yes singles to crack the U.S. Top 40; it has been featured on several of Yes' later compilations, including the box sets Yesyears and In a Word: Yes (1969–). A video for the song is also included on Yes' Greatest Video Hits.
The song was played at every concert during the 1987-88 tour supporting Big Generator. During the first half of the tour it was played as the first encore, and during the second half of the tour it was played early in the set list after Shoot High, Aim Low was dropped. After this tour the song would not be played again live until the summer 1994 tour for Talk, where it was on the set list for approximately 8 shows. The song has not been played since.
In 2003, Trevor Rabin released a pair of albums, each of which featured a different version of "Love Will Find a Way": Live in LA features a 1989 live performance of the song, and 90124 features an early demo of the song in which Rabin sings all the vocals and plays all of the instruments.
