Yeasayer Announces New Album Details

Yeasayer Announces New Album 'Goodbye & Amen'. The album will come out on April 1st via Mute Records

Mute has announced Amen & Goodbye, the fourth studio album from Brooklyn-based band Yeasayer, will be released worldwide on April 1, 2016.

Today, Yeasayer offers a peek into the world of Amen & Goodbye with “I Am Chemistry”, the first track to be heard from their forthcoming album. Featuring guest vocals from folk singer Suzzy Roche of The Roches, ‘I Am Chemistry’ is a linear psychedelic journey proving Yeasayer still has the knack for writing very odd pop songs.

To visually interpret the album, Yeasayer collaborated with renowned sculptor David Altmejd (whose artwork is a major influence on the band) to create the gatefold artwork. The teasers released prior to “I Am Chemistry” contained some of the sculptures Altmejd created while listening to the bands new album. This was a dream come true for the band and the full artwork will be revealed later.

Melding the song and vision of Yeasayer and Altmejd, director group New Team Ltd have created the music video for “I Am Chemistry”. Viewers will enjoy a cosmonaut giving birth, dancing statue children, landscapes strewn with disfigured monuments, poisonous pod plants, and neon caves.

Amen & Goodbye is the follow up to 2012’s Fragrant World. Moving away from a digital-heavy approach, Yeasayer recorded Amen & Goodbye to tape at Outlier Inn Studio in upstate New York, then brought on board Joey Waronker (drummer – Atoms For Peace / Beck) to deconstruct everything to make the final document.
