Clap Your Hands Say Yeah

Videos by American Songwriter

Brooklyn band Clap Your Hands Say Yeah have announced their fifth album, The Tourist, due out February 24. The Alec Ounsworth-helmed project also shared a new single, “Fireproof.”

Ounsworth recorded The Tourist himself in Philadelphia at Dr. Dog’s recording studio and worked with engineer Nick Krill to complete the collection of songs.

“The album was a type of purge,” he says in a statement. “A purge of certain emotional confusion that manifested itself in the last several years. It was not an easy album to make, by virtue of the fact that it was an emotional time for me.”
