Yellow Days & Ric Wilson Announce New EP, Out 10/29, & Share Lead Single

Yellow Days, the musical project of London’s George Van Den Broek, and Chicago rapper RicWilson announce their new collaborative EP, Disco Ric in London Town, out October29th and share the project’s lead single, “Life’s Been Good To Me.” In conjunction, the pair announces a string of North American tour dates with Wilson opening, including shows in SanFranciscoSantaAnaChicagoTorontoNewYorkPhiladelphia, and more. “Life’s Been Good To Me” begins with spacey synths courtesy of Yellow Days and groovy vocals from Lynda Dawn before Wilson joins in with his playful flow. Recorded at London’s Rex Studios, Wilson explains: “George made this beat and I immediately had words in my head.” The pair’s chemistry is felt through “Life’s Been Good To Me,” where Wilson’s words and Yellow Days’ production combine to form funk alchemy. “I remember Ric went for a walk to write some lyrics and I wrote this guy in like a couple hours,” Yellow Days elaborates. “He would always come back and I’d done a whole new track for him to do. He did a lot of walks.”
