Yeasayer ready ‘Fragrant World’ for August 21 release

Yeasayer are back! The band is set to release Fragrant World on August 21, 2012 on Secretly Canadian, the follow up to 2010’s Odd Blood.

Last week, the band sent 200 random fans physical CD of the first single “Henrietta” and encouraged them to share it. Yeasayer wanted the fans to experience the music first and told them so in an accompanying letter. The track went up a few days later and was picked up across the world via an organic viral method: direct to fans

Fragrant World, produced by Yeasayer, is seething with sonics that construct eleven outstanding tracks that act together and also in a solo existence.

Yeasayer have produced something that sounds foreign at first, but after a few studies is filled with the hooks the band is known for.  This is not a dish of pop rocks like Odd Blood, instead Fragrant World is something much weirder and darker.

We are extremely excited to put Fragrant World in your streaming systems.  Get to know Fragrant World.  Yeasayer has once again constructed something fascinating that expands with each play.
