WATCH: New Video for Yeasayer’s “Longevity”

Do you have a secret wish to see what the Yeasayer dudes would look like as old men, skeletons even? Well, that’s kinda weird, but here’s your wish come true. Premiering at Vevo, Yeasayer’s new “Longevity” video features Anand, Chris, Ira and Cale doing what they do best – performing, with a surprising twist thrown in. Watch above to see what happens.

Yeasayer are currently on tour, zipping around North America to bring you the awesome experience that is their live show. Have you heard about or seen their new Creators Project-designed crystalline light and stage environment? It’s pretty spectacular. Paste caught them with the new set-up while they were in Chicago; check out the photos HERE. Tour dates and ticket links HERE.

Are you in Portland, OR? Lucky duck. We’re giving away a pair of tickets to see Yeasayer and recent Sub Pop signee Daughn Gibson live tomorrow (Friday, August 31st) at the Crystal Ballroom –> contest details.

Lastly, get your hands on the new Yeasayer record. Fragrant World is still available on limited-edition colored vinyl at SC Distribution.

Last night Yeasayer returned to Jimmy Fallon for a follow-up to their “Ambling Alp” performance in 2010.

The dudes also unveiled quite a fancy stage and light set-up designed by Creators Project. Get your dancing shoes – it’s time to groove. Watch above!

Love for Fragrant World

“But overall, Fragrant World is a sexy, infectious compilation of conventional musical tropes, filtered through Yeasayer’s dark kaleidoscope.”Paste

The songs throughout Fragrant World are arrestingly forward-thinking without shying away from invoking music’s rich pageantry.Under The Radar

“This is a record of adventure and texture, an attempt, musically, to conjure up a future we may never actually have. Maybe that is kind of nerdy, but Yeasayer carry it off with style to spare.”Drowned In Sound

Yeasayer Premiere New Single “Longevity,” Pre-order Fragrant World

Yeasayer premiere a new single, “Longetivity,” off their forthcoming album, Fragrant World. The first proper single on the album exposes a new found edge in Yeasayer. Lyrically, they hold up a social mirror in a way that made punk so effective, while bathing the lurching and heaving rhythm in a mechanized and otherworldly soul. The melody emerges understated and clean to form a undaunted vision for new music. Stream “Longevity” below!
