I am using hyperref to color my links, and using author year citation style. I cite a lot of works and so my text looks like a mess of black text and colored text now.

How can I just highlight the year instead of the author name and year together ? Is it possible to remove the link from the author name ?

This is the current output and desired output: enter image description here

In tex file

Some text \cite{xu2005survey}, some text \cite{xu2005survey}

  title={Survey of clustering algorithms},
  author={Xu, Rui and Wunsch, Donald},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on neural networks},
