Stella is the fourth studio album by the Swiss electronic band Yello, first released in 1985. It was the band's breakthrough album internationally, helped by the success of the song "Oh Yeah", which gained the band worldwide attention the following year after it was prominently featured in the 1985 film "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" and then two years later in "The Secret Of My Success."

At the time of recording, Boris Blank and Dieter Meier began to move away from experimental electronic sounds towards a more commercial Synth Pop and cinematic soundtrack style. Recorded at the band's Yello Studio on the shore of Lake Zurich, the duo used some rather classic electronic equipment; a Yamaha DX7 and a Roland JX-3P, a Fairlight CMI Series II sampler along with an ARP Odyssey synthesizer, the Linn LM-1 and Oberheim DMX drum machines, a Roland VP-330 Vocoder Plus and more.

Two singles were originally released from Stella. "Vicious Games" was accompanied with a video shot in Yello's Rote Fabrik (Red Factory) working space. The second single, "Desire" was also accompanied by a video, shot in Havana in Cuba to match the song's Latin sound. Following the appearance of "Oh Yeah" in Ferris Bueller's Day Off and The Secret Of My Success, the song was also released as a single in 1987.

Music On Vinyl has included two exclusive bonus tracks: "Oh Yeah (Indian Summer Version)" & "Vicious Games (12"mix)"!
