Yeasayer returned last week with “I’ll Kiss You Tonight”, their first new music release in three years. Now, the psych pop veterans have formally and finally announced the album on which that single is set to appear. The Amen & Goodbye follow-up is titled, Erotic Reruns, and is marked down for a June 7th due date via their own Yeasayer Records.

Initial ideas for the LP began brewing toward the end of 2016 and serve as a “vehement” response to the fateful presidential election that closed out the year, per a press statement. Throughout the full-length, Yeasayer weave in “a sardonic and chilling reaction to dark times” alongside “moments of warmth and reflection,” as they ruminate on paranoia, humanity, and technology.

The new album also sees Yeasayer revisiting their earlier, more DIY days, as all nine songs were recorded in studios in Brooklyn and upstate New York built by the group members themselves — singer/multi-instrumentalist Chris Keating, singer/multi-instrumentalist Anand Wilder, and bassist/singer Ira Wolf Tuton.

To coincide with the LP news, the three-piece has broken off not one, but two new songs: “Let Me Listen in on You” and closing track “Fluttering in the Floodlights”. Hear both below.

Pre-orders for Erotic Reruns are ongoing. In anticipation of release day, grab the band’s past records on vinyl here.
