Zach Grace of indie band Flor and MisterWives frontwoman Mandy Lee have teamed up for a cover of Coldplay’s “Yellow,” premiering exclusively on Billboard today (Feb. 7).

The accompanying visual is a reimagining of the 2000 music video, and features Grace and Lee on a moodily-lit beach.

"‘Yellow' is such a spark of magic, that we’ve always admired,” Grace tells Billboard. “We wanted to put our spin on a song that had such an impact on our band and the world.”

“I absolutely adore these lads and was honored when they asked me to sing on this compelling rendition of a Coldplay favorite,” Lee adds, explaining that she and her Fueled By Ramen labelmates shot the video at sunrise in Malibu “on two hours of sleep, sans coffee because I wore all white (rookie mistake)!” 

The group was able to laugh through it, though, and get the stunning results they needed. 

“That, to me, is testament to how much good energy, talent and fun exists within the band,” Lee says, “and I was lucky enough to be invited into their fam for a day.”

"Yellow" appears on Flor's new three-track EP (also out today) of stripped-back songs, titled Reimagined.
