Earlier today Yeasayer posted a new song to Spotify, “I Am Chemistry.” Just before Christmas the Brooklyn-based trio posted a mysterious new 23-second teaser video titled “Amen & Goodbye.” Now the band have announced their new album and shared a striking animated video for “I Am Chemistry,” which you can watch below. Amen & Goodbye is indeed the title of the album and it’s due out April 1 via Mute.

“I Am Chemistry” features guest vocals from folk singer Suzzy Roche of The Roches. Yeasayer collaborated with sculptor David Altmejd on the artwork for the album. Director group New Team Ltd directed the music video for “I Am Chemistry,” which was inspired by Altmejd’s work. The press release describes the video as such: “Viewers will enjoy a cosmonaut giving birth, dancing statue children, landscapes strewn with disfigured monuments, poisonous pod plants, and neon caves.”

Amen & Goodbye was recorded to tape at Outlier Inn Studio in upstate New York. Joey Waronker (drummer - Atoms For Peace / Beck) was then brought on board to “deconstruct everything to make the final document.” The band’s last album was 2012’s slightly underrated Fragrant World. Below is the Amen & Goodbye tracklist, “I Am Chemistry” video, and album cover.
