RELEASE DATE: 2021
MEDIA FORMAT: 12" LP, Album
Music From Memory are excited to present the debut LP of Kaifeng born, Vancouver based artist Yu Su in collaboration with Chinese label bié Records. Titled ‘Yellow River Blue’ it is our first release of 2021 and the second collaboration between label and artist, following up on the strongly received EP ‘Roll With The Punches’ from 2019 on Second Circle.
Named after the world’s most heavily silted river, ‘Yellow River Blue’ is Yu Su’s personal musical autobiography, constructed around stories of chasing something inconceivable. Written and recorded in different continents in between August 2019 and March 2020, all songs seek to musically translate years of moving and touring, temporarily settling, and the feelings of both being turned away and accepted. In her own words, “The world is my home and it isn’t, but as long as there is generosity of water and mud…” It is an homage to her home beside the Yellow River.
