"Yellow and Grey" recalls Mistrust's recent train journey to Port Sunlight (the historic workers' village in Wirral, UK), on the ageing yellow and grey trains that pass through the village. These trains are being replaced by shiny new modern trains which are also yellow and grey! Hence the line "Yellow and Grey is here to stay!" The song's overall themes are nostalgia and new beginnings!

"Yellow and Grey" includes a line from the poem "From a Railway Carriage" by Robert Louis Stevenson (can you spot it?), and there's also a nod to the classic Kraftwerk song "Trans Europe Express" with Mistrust recording a German language version of Yellow and Grey ("gelb und grau") which is released alongside the original song.

Tim Blackburn, the UK singer-songwriter and remixer who records as Mistrust, is back with a new single called "Yellow and Grey". It marks his first new material since the release of his single "Never Let You Go" last year.

Please note: This is the English Language single version of Yellow and Grey.

Yellow and Grey is here to stay (Chorus)

Leave the city right on time
Yellow green and red lights shine
*Painted stations whistle by
People watch but don't know why

Bridges houses silhouettes
Long forgotten no regrets
Sunlight starts to reappear
Yellow and grey is why I'm here

Yellow and Grey is here to stay (Chorus)

Fantasize about transmission
Electric lines and information
Memories won't fade away
Yellow and grey is here to stay

Yellow and Grey is here to stay (Chorus)

Chester, Bache and Capenhurst
Bromborough and Eastham Rake
Port Sunlight and Bebington
Hamiliton and Birkenhead

Yellow and Grey is here to stay (Chorus)

*Line from "From A Railway Carriage" (1885)
Robert Louis Stevenson
