The legendary electronic duo Yello are celebrating their 40th anniversary with a comprehensive retrospective, Yell40 Years, set for release through Polydor on April 30.

Dieter Meier and Boris Blank’s new anthology collection is not a common best of with the typical songs like “The Race”, “Oh Yeah” or the ground-breaking “Bostich”, but more a place for all the pearls of their discography that have always stood for the Yello sound cosmos, but never really received the spotlight that they deserve. Songs like the everlasting fan favourite “I Love You”, the eccentric “Rubberbandman” or the Mellow Yello classic “Desire” – the stylistic range of the Zurich originals have always known no limits.

With detailed liner notes and visual impressions of the last four decades, Yell40 Years is a must-have for all lovers of the special electronic sounds made in Switzerland.

Yell40 Years will be available as a strictly limited 4CD hardcover book, as a regular 2CD, as a black 180g double vinyl and as a download and on all streaming portals.

The limited 4CD hardcover book version also contains a retrospective ‘A Wider Shade Of Yello’ curated by Boris Blank, on which mainly the “mellow” and not immanently obvious Yello pieces were brought together, whereas on the fourth bonus CD favourite remixes of the past 40 years have been compiled. Some of them have been completely unpublished so far, including by DJ luminary DJ Hell and the former Factory Records representative, author and filmmaker Mark Reeder.

Yell40 Years follows the 2020 frontline release of the duo’s latest studio album, Point, with more catalogue vinyl reissues planned for later in 2021.
