New Album 'Eighty One' Out Now

Yppah - New Album 'Eighty One' Out Now

Yppah's new album Eighty One is out now - grab a free Kwes. remix of "Film Burn" here.

Landscape and memory have always played a central part in the music of Joe Corrales Jr. aka Yppah (pronounced “yippah”). His third album for Ninja Tune reflects a change in the landscape around him.

Midway through the process of recording Eighty One, Corrales started making regular trips to Galveston, on the Texas Gulf coast, to surf. So energised was he by his experiences, he left his home in Texas and moved to Long Beach, California. Unsurprisingly then, he says that the images he had in his head as he made his new music were of the sea and the beach. “I wanted a lot of the songs to feel like a warm wash,” he explains.

The final piece in this act of reinvention is the presence of Anomie Belle, a singer, producer and classically trained violinist based in Seattle. The pair met when Yppah was touring with Bonobo in 2010. She offered to listen through to demos of Eighty One to see if she could find a track which she could add something to. In the words of Yppah, “it was such a natural fit she ended up doing four!”

Beautiful, uplifting and imbued with a natural, unaffected warmth that cuts through the most biting cold, Eighty One is Yppah’s most satisfying work yet. Buy now at the Ninjashop and iTunes, and watch the video for single "Film Burn" below.
