    Yeasayer is pleased to share their new single, Silly Me,” from their forthcoming fourth studio album, Amen & Goodbye, out on April 1, 2016.

    Listen to Silly Me’,

    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 in order to make the final document.

    The finished album has, as a loose concept, an underlying narrative informed by religion and transcendence, the afterlife and the search for meaning. The songs stream together like a collection of strange fables from the Bible of some universe that does not yet exist. Amen & Goodbye features Yeasayer’s trademark sound without sounding like anything the band has done before.

    Watch the video for their previous single, I Am Chemistryhere, featuring guest vocals from the legendary folk singer Suzzy Roche of The Roches.
