Clap Your Hands Say Yeah announce new album, The Tourist, share “Fireproof”

Songwriter Alec Ounsworth on Feburary 24th will release a new album under Clap Your Hands Say Yeah named The Tourist. It will be his fifth full-length under the name and it is the follow-up to 2014’s Only Run.

The Tourist was recorded in a week at Dr. Dog’s studio in Philadelphia. It has 10 tracks and they were engineered by Nick Krill of The Spinto Band and mixed by Dave Fridmann, who also helped on two of CYHSY’s previous LPs. The album is said to be a “nod” to Ounsworth’s inspirations like Tom Waits, Nick Cave, and Paul Simon.

The Tourist Tracklist:
01. The Pilot
02. A Chance To Cure
03. Down (is Where I Want To Be)
04. Unfolding Above Celibate Moon (Los Angeles Nursery Rhyme)
05. Better Off
06. Fireproof
07. The Vanity Of Trying
08. Loose Ends
09. Ambulance Chaser
10. Visiting Hours

Ounsworth will embark on a North American tour in support of the LP beginning in March.
