YELLOW CLAW Reveal New Video for “Light Years” ft X Factor Holland’s Rochelle

In 2013, Rochelle–an X Factor Holland champion–blew minds as the featured vocalist on YELLOW CLAW‘s “Shotgun.”  To date its video has amassed almost 105 million views. Today (March 24), the musical trifecta is back with something new–the shimmering “Light Years” which appears on YELLOW CLAW‘s new album LOS AMSTERDAM (Mad Decent), out March 31.

 “We had the idea of doing a song about light shows,” says YELLOW CLAW.  “When you’re listening to music or experiencing anything in life, it can go really fast and really slow at the same time. That’s the feeling.”  The video which features Rochelle reflects this.

LOS AMSTERDAM is where the sound of future music lives, somewhere between YELLOW CLAW‘s native city (Amsterdam) and their second home (Los Angeles). For the follow-up to their 2015 debut Blood For Mercy, YELLOW CLAW–who is Jim Aasgier and Nizzle–offer 13 tracks featuring a variety of special guests.  The album leads with “Home” featuring Sophie Simmons, daughter of KISS’ Gene Simmons, and is also highlighted by rap-fueled tracks “City On Lockdown” featuring Juicy J & Lil Debbie (the latter of whom wowed YELLOW CLAW fans at the duo’s two sold-out Los Angeles Palladium this past summer) and “Stacksfeaturing Quavo, Tinie Tempah and Cesqeaux. Other notable album cuts include “Friends In the Dark” with Dutch soul singer Otis Parker; “Hold On To Me” with fellow dance floor mavens GTA; plus two songs with plenty of female-fronted fire, “Rose Horizon” featuring STORi and “Light Years” featuring Rochelle.  With a huge, loyal fanbase crowding their gigs from Las Vegas to Tokyo and everywhere in between, YELLOW CLAW is known to deliver electrifying shows.
