George Van Den Broek, otherwise known as Yellow Days, has dropped the single “It’s Real Love.” The track is now available via Sony Music U.K./RCA Records. The song was recorded in LA with John Carol Kirby (Solange / Conan Mockasin). The song follows “Just When” released earlier this summer.
His next project, an album through RCA Records, is all about “my time right now.” Currently being recorded in fuller studio environments that the, now nineteen year old, van dan Broek has long been aspiring to make music in – with full respect to the shed back home – it’s set to contain the same light versus dark sparring match that defines his finest songs so far.
“The whole point of Yellow Days is to be a project about youth,” he states. “It’s all about being young and having this overwhelming sense of emotion, this confusion, all heading towards an eventual goal of happiness.
“It’s all about the hope within.
“It’s Real Love” comes out while Yellow Days’ is on tour in North America and Europe. Stops in Brooklyn, Mo Pop Festival in Detroit, and a Lollapalooza aftershow in Chicago are still to come followed by an intimate Europe run in the fall.

From Yellow Days:
“The reason why I make music is to understand myself and the world around me,” sums up the Manchester-raised, Surrey-based musician, whose candid, soul-doused songs have guided a spotlight on him since emerging in 2016.
At sixteen, George would come home from school and retreat to his self-made home studio. He dropped out of college and flunked his exams. He returns to that same studio to self-teach himself the piano, guitar, bass and the fundamentals of production. “I just want to become a full producer-songwriter; someone who can play everything.”
