    SPECIAL THANKS to Earthworks Microphones for helping us make this shoot happen (and for making the best microphones!). Also, big thanks to Paul Jacobson from Avatar Productions and Pierre Rueda for their video expertise.

    Is anyone else in denial like us that this song came out almost 20 YEARS AGO?! Crazy. It's still one of our favourites though. We loved working on it and had a blast filming!

    Look at the stars
    Look how they shine for you
    And everything you do
    Yeah, they were all yellow
    I came along
    I wrote a song for you
    And all the things you do
    And it was called "Yellow"
    So then I took my turn
    Oh, what a thing to have done
    And it was all yellow

    Your skin, oh yeah, your skin and bones
    Turn into something beautiful
    You know, you know I love you so
    You know I love you so

    I swam across
    I jumped across for you
    Oh, what a thing to do
    'Cause you were all yellow
    I drew a line
    I drew a line for you
    Oh, what a thing to do
    And it was all yellow

    Your skin, oh yeah, your skin and bones
    Turn into something beautiful
    And you know
    For you, I'd bleed myself dry
    For you, I'd bleed myself dry

    It's true, look how they shine for you
    Look how they shine for you


    Founded in 2014, Brooklyn Duo has quickly established itself as one of today’s most successful classical crossover ensembles. Through its creative arrangements and live video performances, the piano and cello duo has garnered a huge following, with over 800,000 YouTube subscribers, and over 150 million streams annually on platforms such as Spotify and Pandora Radio.

    In 2014, on a whim, the couple arranged and recorded two pop covers and released them on YouTube. Amazingly, Shakira noticed the duo’s cover and promoted it to her 130 million-plus fan base, saying: “We're loving Brooklyn Duo's piano/cello cover of Empire! Great work guys." The boost that resulted from that exposure and the positive response they were getting on YouTube encouraged the couple to continue creating videos. (Other notable shout-outs since then include ones from Taylor Swift, a-ha and Pearl Jam.)

    Today, Marnie and Patrick have released over 100 videos on their Brooklyn Duo YouTube channel and 9 albums of covers, spanning artists from The Beatles to Metallica to Ariana Grande. In 2016, the couple started a second YouTube channel, Brooklyn Classical, with the goal of introducing classical music to a larger audience through high quality, live performances. Brooklyn Classical often hosts high-profile guest artists, including the world-renowned Dover and Escher string quartets, percussionist Ivan Trevino and cellist Cicely Parnas.

    In 2017, Marnie and Patrick partnered with Carnegie Hall and Ensemble Connect to produce a cover of a-ha’s “Take On Me”. The video went viral and garnered millions of views in just a few months. Popular classical music stations Classic FM and WQXR regularly share Brooklyn Duo’s music on their social media pages, with Classic FM calling the duo “masters of the artfully planned pop cover.” Their music has also been featured on several television shows, including Grey's Anatomy and Pretty Little Liars.
