Press Info (English):
We are ecstatic to announce that Amen & Goodbye, the fourth studio album from Brooklyn-based band Yeasayer, will be released worldwide via Mute on 1 April 2016.

Yeasayer offer a peek into the world of Amen & Goodbye with ‘I Am Chemistry’, the first track to be heard from their highly anticipated forthcoming album. Featuring guest vocals from the legendary folk singer Suzzy Roche of The Roches, ‘I Am Chemistry’ is a linear psychedelic journey proving

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 is utterly spectacular.

Melding the song and vision of Yeasayer and Altmejd, director group New Team Ltd have created the music video for ‘I Am Chemistry’. Yes, it’s as odd and fantastic as you’d expect from a Yeasayer music video: 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.

Amen & Goodbye features Yeasayer’s trademark sound without sounding like anything the band has done before. They have created a collection of strange fables from the Bible of a universe that does not yet exist.

 

Press Info (German):
Wir freuen uns sehr, die Veröffentlichung des vierten Studioalbums der Brooklyner Band Yeasayer ankündigen zu dürfen. Amen & Goodbye erscheint am 01. April weltweit über Mute.

Amen & Goodbye ist das Nachfolgealbum zum 2012er Werk Fragrant World – den digitalen Ansatz des letzten Werkes hinter sich lassend, wurde das neue Album im Outlier Inn Studio in Upstate New York auf Tape aufgenommen, um es dann von Joey Waronker (Schlagzeug bei Atoms For Peace / Beck) dekonstruieren und erneut zusammensetzen zu lassen.

Und so klingt Amen & Goodbye zugleich nach Yeasayer und nach nichts, was Yeassayer je gemacht haben. Und nach einer Sammlung seltsamer Fabeln aus der Bibel eines Universums, das noch nicht existiert.

Für das Album Artwork arbeiteten Yeasayer diesmal mit dem von ihnen lang verehrten Bildhauer David Altmejd zusammen – die von der Band bereits veröffentlichten kurzen Teaser zeigen Skulpturen, die Altmejd zur Musik des neuen Albums schuf:

Musik und Vision kongenial zu einem Video zum Vorabtrack verwoben haben New York Team Ltd., ein Zusammenschluss von New Yorker Filmemachern.
