LSTN: Yeasayer’s ‘Fragrant World’ on NPR’s First Listen, Plus New Remix of Gotye’s “Eyes Wide Open” at Rolling Stone

Two weeks ago, Yeasayer sent fans in a frenzy with their album scavenger hunt. Unleashing videos on various sites throughout the day, fans could listen to Fragrant World only by locating each vignette. For all those who missed out on the new album during the hunt, here’s your second chance. It’s streaming throughout the week at NPR’s First Listen. Out August 21, Fragrant World is available to pre-order at SC Distribution.

Stream Fragrant World at First Listen.

Currently on the US leg of their tour, Yeasayer will soon travel to Europe for a string of shows. Dates include FYF Festival and yes, it’s true – Yeasayer is in fact playing the Coachella Cruise alongside Father John Misty, Hot Chip, Warpaint and more. See all tour dates HERE.

Yeasayer rework Gotye’s “Eyes Wide Open” for his upcoming remix EP. Listen exclusively at Rolling Stone.

“…it can be hard to tell where organic sounds end and electronic wizardry begins – a fitting mystery for a band so preoccupied with humanity’s ever-shifting place in the modern world. From the opening seconds of “Fingers Never Bleed” on, its worldview is fully realized, as a stormily off-kilter arrangement induces an immediate sense of woozy foreboding. Even singer Chris Keating doesn’t quite sound of this world: He might channel David Byrne here and there, but he elsewhere explores a mode of expression that can seem animalistic, even alien.”Stephen Thompson, NPR

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!
