Yellow Days Releases Video For “You”
Yellow Days has dropped a new video for “You.” The track is off his forthcoming release, A Day in a Yellow Beat, which is now set for release on September 18th via Columbia Records, The LP also features contributions from Mac DeMarco and Bishop Nehru.
Yellow Days is also announcing a new radio show – aptly titled Yellow Days radio – to air every Sunday at 21:00 leading up to the album release. The first episode will air this Sunday, July 12th, and feature an interview and jam session with Shirley Jones from the American R&B 70’s trio, The Jones Girls. Future guests will include Kiefer, John Caroll Kirby, Daniel Aged and Lemar, Count Bass D, Bishop Nehru, Mike Malchicoff, and the Yellow Days band. Listen to the first episode here.
A Day in a Yellow Beat is Yellow Days’ sophomore record and his first for Columbia. George is a self-taught multi-instrumentalist and self-medicated auteur who has never quite fitted into one style or space. As he readies his new album, his sound continues to warp funky, while his words dig deeper into modern malaise and mental health. It is, as he says, “Upbeat existential millennial crisis music.”
On his current musical direction, George explains “I’m trying to brand my own version of ironic dance music full of depressing truths about feeling distant from your friends, or a sense that nothing is worth anything,” In particular he’s been diving into the ’70s: fusion-era works of Herbie Hancock and Quincy Jones, the funkier phases of Marvin Gaye and Curtis Mayfield, and the keyboard wizardry of Don Blackman and Weldon Irvine. He’s been staying up until 5 a.m. watching Soul Train on YouTube, and testing his falsetto. ‘A Day in a Yellow Beat’ is a real-time culmination of ideas, however wild they may be.
