Yeasayer Amen And Goodbye on LP + Download
The fourth studio album from Brooklyn-based band Yeasayer, Amen & Goodbye, will be released worldwide in April 2016. 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 album announcement 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.
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. Previously unveiled track, "I Am Chemistry," featuring guest vocals from the legendary folk singer Suzzy Roche of The Roches, is a linear psychedelic journey proving Yeasayer still has the knack for writing very odd pop songs.
