Clap Your Hands Say Yeah have announced a new album, 'New Fragility'

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah have announced a brand new album.

Titled 'New Fragility', it's set for release on 29th January 2021, and comes alongside two new singles, 'Hesitating Nation' and 'Thousand Oaks'.

The band's Alec Ounsworth explains: "These songs are politically motivated, which is unusual for me. The only other politically motivated song I've written is [2005 self-titled debut album track] 'Upon This Tidal Wave of Young Blood'."

"'Hesitating Nation' is a song meant to convey my sense of disappointment and alienation with the rewarded mentality of getting ahead at all costs, inevitably to the detriment of those who didn't sign up to be part of the experiment."

"In 2018, there was a shooting in Thousand Oaks, CA which killed 13 people. This song has to do with the impotence of the American government in the face of such tragedies."

You can check out 'Hesitating Nation' and 'Thousand Oaks' below.
