Yellow Days Announces UK & EU Live tour for 2021
+ The new album ‘A Day in a Yellow Beat’ September 18th (Columbia Records)
The most recent offering from Yellow’s Day’s incredibly accomplished new album ‘A Day in A Yellow Beat’ (due September 18th) was the sunshining burst of funked up joy of ‘Getting Closer' – an ode to music in a summer where music struggled to find its voice in a live capacity. This followed a series of tantalizing tasters of the new record in the form of previous tracks ‘You’, 'Love is Everywhere’ and ‘Treat You Right’.
As an artist who has always thrived on the live stage – not being able to perform any of this new music to his ever-growing live following has been a real struggle for Yellow Days (aka George van den Broek). 2020 thew us all a massive curve ball on that front but as a chink of light appears at the end of the tunnel for the live industry, George has announced a live tour for spring 2021. Having not played a gig since an AMP night at The Jazz Café, London in October 2019, George and his band are incredibly excited to get ‘A Day in a Yellow Beat’ out on the road.
In a previous life, when live tours where a staple part of our existence, Yellow Days had built up an impressive following. On his last tour he sold out Brixton Electric and played two completely sold out runs across Europe and the US. Festivals were also very much part of his playing ground and included performances at Coachella, Primavera and Glastonbury amongst others.
See below for the full run of shows for next year across Europe and the UK.
Tickets for the tour go on sale On Friday September 11th at 10am
‘A Day in a Yellow Beat’ is Yellow Days’ sophomore record and his first for Columbia.
On this new album, inspiration comes from a deep-dive into '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.
For this new album Yellow Days spent a lot of time writing and recording in LA with a whole host of incredible artists and musicians – many of whom have / still play for the likes of Raphael Saadiq, Frank Ocean, Weldon Irvine, Kanye West. In doing so, George has taken it back to a more traditional way of making music – from hand-picking the collaborators, selecting the perfect studio setting to recording everything on analogue, vintage gear; all of which has vastly enhanced the sound Yellow Days is now capable of creating and he is sure to translate that sound impeccably to a live setting as he projects his vision for this album onto the global stage.
