Yanni Burton Serves “A Part of Me” This Weekend. We know What Part You Want.2 min read

Our favorite Aussie bloke, Yanni Burton, is celebrating his Independence Day weekend with a new single and music video, “A Part of Me,” out today.   It turns the spotlight on his own struggles of letting go and moving on from past relationships.

“I have a history of getting lost in memories and emotions,” he admits. “To the point where I become consumed with panic, anxiety and I can’t function properly or move on with my life.”


Produced by Yanni with his close friend Tiger Darrow, the song contains a dreamy, trippy soundscape and is darker and more emotionally intense than his previous singles.  However, it still contains the pop/dance feel the artist has become known for.

“As heavy as the lyrics may seem, I still want listeners to have fun, dance a little and let loose,” he explains. “I hope to inspire a sense of celebration that comes with gaining freedom from the mistakes of our past.”

The music video for “A Part of Me” depicts the madness and dream like world Yanni sings about in the song.  Filmed by Brian Thomas and famed dancer/choreographer Cassidy Noblett (who has toured the world with Beyonce, Lady Gaga, and Katy Perry, among others), it was shot entirely in a black box with UV lights.

“The idea was to turn off the lights and to expose the marks left behind from previous relationships; marks that you cannot physically see but the illusions and fantasies that still linger in the mind,” Yanni says.
