After dropping a few EPs, Amsterdam DJ trio Yellow Claw are prepping to release their debut album, Blood for Mercy. But don’t expect it to be a longer version of what you’ve heard before — they’re already exploring new sounds.
“About six months ago we started working on our debut album, Blood for Mercy. We soon realized that it was the first time we actually made music that wasn’t meant to play in our set,” Yellow Claw tells Billboard. “With this new state of mind in the studio a bunch of songs were created with a new sound, and new musical structures, which we have never used before. ‘Run Away’ is the first of those songs to see the light of day.”
Today, Billboard has the exclusive premiere of Yellow Claw’s “Run Away” video. Appropriately enough, the moody clip features a beautiful woman who appears to be on the run from something — or perhaps searching for something. It’s just three minutes, but it gives you cinematic shots of the open road, sex, and even a burning car. What more do you want?
