David was the lead singer in Yes, but left the band in early 2012 following medical advice to stop touring and was replaced by Jon Davison. The liner notes for Mystery's The World is a Game (2012) declared that David "would like to thank Chris, Steve, Alan, Oliver, Geoff, Paul [Silveira] and all the others for a great experience and a wonderful journey." David left Mystery shortly after. The press release from Mystery's Michel St-Père explained, "In the spring of 2012, as we were preparing for our first European shows, Benoit discussed with me his desire to take a break from Music and Mystery for a while. He fulfilled his commitment to do all of the shows that were booked for Mystery up until the Toronto show in June. We took the summer off, and in the Fall, Benoit announced that he was officially leaving the band." It appears an announcement was then held back until Mystery had appointed their new lead vocalist, Jean Pageau.

Mystery played live in support of The World is a Game. There was a scattering of dates in 2012-3; the live band latterly consisted of St-Père, David, Sylvain Moineau (guitars), Jean-Sébastien Goyette (drums), François Fournier (bass) and Benoît Dupuis (keys). A 10 May 2013 show in the Netherlands was filmed. St-Père has mixed a live 2CD release, out 2014 and called Tales from the Netherlands (Unicorn Digital; YouTube teaser). A DVD is still under consideration; tracks:

  1. "Unveil the Mystery" (1:27; intro)
  2. "As I am" (5:49)
  3. "Dear Someone" (6:52)
  4. "Sailing on a Wing" (5:00)
  5. "Wolf" (5:38)
  6. "Another Day" (19:24)
  7. "Pride" (12:19)
  8. "Through Different Eyes" (22:16)
  9. "Times Goes by" (6:44)
  10. "Travel to the Night" (9:26)
