You can take a listen to the track below, which comes along with a video inspired by Thackray’s love of dystopian science fiction.
“It’s a record about togetherness, the oneness of all things in the universe, showing love and kindness, human connection,” Thackray said of the new album.
“I approached the record by trying to simulate a life-changing psychedelic experience, an hour where we see behind the curtain to a hidden dimension, where the physical realm melts away and we finally see that we are all one.”
The full tracklisting for ‘Yellow’ is as follows:
2. Say Something
3. About That
5. Green Funk
6. Third Eye
7. May There Be Peace
9. Golden Green
11. Rahu & Ketu
13. Our People
14. Mercury (In Retrograde)
‘Yellow’ will be released on Thackray’s own label Movementt on July 2. It’s her first release since her 2020 EPs ‘Rain Dance’ and ‘Um Yang 음 양’.
‘Rain Dance’ was named by NME as one of the 20 best EPs of the year. “Whether it be on the smoky double-opener ‘Rain Dance/Wisdom’, the hip-hop leaning ‘Open’ or dancefloor dynamo ‘Movementt’ – Thackray’s vision is fully realised alongside her most ambitious compositions to date,” wrote NME‘s Dhruva Baldram.
