“Ride Out In The Country” Yola

UK singer/songwriter Yola’s forthcoming release, Walk Through Fire, produced by The Black Keys’ member Dan Auerbach, will be released on February 22, 2019 on Easy Eye Sound. This week Yola shared her new video for album single “Ride Out In The Country.”

Walk Through Fire is a Yola’s twist on a traditional sonic tapestry of orchestral strings, fiddle, steel and shimmering tremolo guitars, it provides the perfect soundtrack to Yola’s vocals, which first came to the attention of Auerbach after a friend sent him a video of her performing in Nashville.

The video was filmed just outside of Nashville – I got to do some driving thanks to some studio trickery (I ride a cruiser motorcycle). I’m really proud of it and the message is really important to me. It is inspired by an abusive relationship previously and allowed myself to be hoodwinked into that role. I’m done with that version of myself and it felt visually fitting to bury her, my ex and that whole stage of my life.

Dan Auerbach on working with Yola:

“The moment I met Yola I was impressed. Her spirit fills the room, just like her voice…she has the ability to sing in a full roar or barely a whisper and that is a true gift. She made everyone in the studio an instant believer.”
