“’Our People’ sums up what the whole record is about,” Thackray said in a press release. “It’s that cosmic-jazz-esque sound, a driving groove with synthy goodness, with lyrics that sum up the universal truth I’ve been writing about: we’re all our people. We’re not the same but we’re from the same, and we are one being. From one person to another, to a tree, to an animal, I believe we’re all one, and we’re all love.”
Yellow, which will follow Emma-Jean Thackray’s 2020 EPs Um Yang 음 양 and Rain Dance, is due out July 2 via her own label Movementt. It includes the previously unveiled singles ‘Spectre’ and ‘Say Something’.
