New Yello Single

Postby Yellow » Wed Oct 22, 2008 3:32 pm

I have a hunch that the first Yello single from the next album will be called "You Better Hide" with Heidi Happy.

The Swiss Channel DRS3 played it this morning, as listed here (at 8:46am)

And Boris was in the studio being interviewed where they played a few seconds of the track at the end of the interview if you listen:

Just a hunch. :)

Thanks for the heads-up. Hopefully the single will be released online before too long. The snippet in the interview sounds very much like some of the material on Progress & Perfection.

I'm getting to the point where I can almost understand what they're saying, but not quite. Anyone want to give a brief summary of what the interview discussed?

Franz from the yello mailing list translated the interview. Here is what he said.


I have listened to the interview. As a native Bavarian I understand about 90% of the Swiss German language spoken here. Some findings here:

I used Winamp to listen to the link. I had set the Winamp display to count down the time to 0. It displays a total time of 19:15 in the beginning, but continues after 0:00 for some more minutes. I was not able to fast forward or backward. When I tried it always started from the beginning.

They talk quite long about the history of Yello, about what Boris has done for this Swiss radio station, about The Race and how it got created. Boris had created several jingles for the radio station. You then hear some oh yeah based jingles . Boris says, he got inspired by the Hazy Osterwald Sextett, a famous Swiss Jazz combo in the 60s and 70s and their song "Kriminal Tango", where a rhythmic spoken pattern is used. http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hazy_Osterwald

The Race was initially created as a Jingle for the German TV show "Formel Eins", then got enhanced several times and finally released as a track. http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Formel_Eins

Now the interesting part: Boris confirms, that the new Album is finished. "We are in negotiation with the marketing dept.of Universal in Berlin". The new album will be released "early 2009", "spring 2009", "February, March 2009".

There will be a guest singer Heidi Happy on the new album - see http://www.heidihappy.ch/

Finally at the end there is an excerpt from one track "You better hide".

And sorry, there is no word about a new single in the interview. They talk about singles in general and also about jingles, but not about a new single.

So listen to the interview and enjoy the preview on the new album after about 20 minutes....

Have fun
Franz
