DAVE KOZ · COLORS OF A NEW DAY (YELLOW)


“I heard the Beatles' "Yesterday" on the radio. Through the lens of the pandemic, I felt this amazing melody and prophetic lyrics in a completely different way. Oh, how I longed for Yesterday! Haven’t we ALL?! It's always been one of my favorite songs and I'd never gotten the chance to record it. Considering how much all our lives had changed since COVID-19's arrival, it seemed like the right idea to include this amazing song in the narrative of the album, for it truly was just yesterday that our lives were completely different. And while we can’t necessarily go back to that same kind of innocence, the prospect of a bright tomorrow is something we all can focus on.

I immediately enlisted the help of genius vocalist / instrumentalist / producer Matt Cusson, who developed the hauntingly beautiful and intimate track…it's Matt who does all those stunning Take Six-style vocals you’ll hear. And then we invited the incomparable Meshell Ndgeocello to play bass…and man, did she turn in an EPIC performance. The bass part alone is a work of art!

I do hope it brings peaceful memories of life before the pandemic, and helps you chart your course for the future as well...for knowing where we’ve come from will help guide us to where we are going.” – Dave Koz


Escuché "Yesterday" de los Beatles en la radio. Bajo el prisma de la pandemia, sentí esta increíble melodía y letras proféticas de una manera completamente diferente. ¡Oh, cuánto anhelaba el ayer! ¡¿No nos ocurre a TODOS ?! Siempre ha sido una de mis canciones favoritas y nunca tuve la oportunidad de grabarla. Teniendo en cuenta cuánto habían cambiado todas nuestras vidas desde la llegada de COVID-19, parecía la idea correcta incluir esta increíble canción en la narrativa del álbum, ya que realmente fue ayer cuando nuestras vidas pasaron a ser completamente diferentes. Y aunque no podemos volver a ese mismo tipo de inocencia, la perspectiva de un mañana brillante es algo en lo que todos podemos concentrarnos. 

Inmediatamente solicité la ayuda del genio vocalista/instrumentista/ productor Matt Cusson, quien desarrolló la canción inquietantemente hermosa e íntima ... es Matt quien hace todas esas impresionantes voces al estilo Take Six que escucharás. Y luego invitamos a la incomparable Meshell Ndgeocello a tocar el bajo ... y hombre, hizo una actuación ÉPICA. ¡La parte del bajo solo es una obra de arte!" – Dave Koz
