Yeasayer Share “Gerson’s Whistle” – New Album Amen & Goodbye Out April 1

Yeasayer have shared a new track from Amen & Goodbye due out April 1, which serves as a followup to 2012’s Fragrant World. The new work moves away from the well arranged, digital-heavy tones into a sound unique to the band, which can be heard on “Gerson’s Whistle,” featuring vocals from Suzzy Roche (The Roches).

Yeasayer recorded Amen & Goodbye live to tape in upstate New York at Outlier Studio. As a loose concept, the new finished body has a loose underlying narrative based off religion and transcendence, the afterlife, and the search for meaning. The songs play together like a collection of odd tales from a Bible of some nonexistent universe.

Yeasayer previously shared “Silly Me” and a video to accompany “I Am Chemistry” along with a series of album teasers, one of which features “Prophecy Gun,” another new track that sounds like Yeasayer, but stands out from their previous work.

Yeasayer is heading out on tour this Spring, including a headline performance at Irving Plaza in New York. A full set of dates are listed below; For tickets, album pre-order, or any other info visit the band’s website Here.
