Ok, so it's not exactly new music from The The, but here's a cool project Matt Johnson worked on recently - Yellofier.  Yellofier is a new sampler/sound app created by Yello co-founder Boris Blank and Swedish music producer Håkan Lidbo.  With the app users record everyday sounds (a barking dog, ringing alarm clock, flushing toilet, or whatever else) and the sounds can be Yellofied (aka transformed by the app) into music.  Besides lending his voice to the tutorial/promo video for Yellofier, Matt Johnson is one of several musicians who created songs and sounds specifically for the free app, which was released for iPhone, iTouch, and iPad at the beginning of April. Check out the promo video narrated by Johnson below:



Yellofier partnered with Electronic Beats for a song competition: experiment and create a new song with Yellofier or remix previously recorded songs/sounds (ones that come with the app from Matt Johnson, Carl Craig, Trentemøller, the Orb, Orbital, and more) and submit your creation. The grand prize winner scores a flight to Zurich, Germany to hang out and Yellofy the city with Boris Blank!  The competition runs through June 1st - visit Electronic Beats or the official Yellofier site to find out more about the contest, and check out some of the songs that have already been submitted.

To hear the sounds/songs created by Johnson and others for the app, download Yellofier here .
