Clap Your Hands Say Yeah celebrates the 10th Anniversary of their debut album

Thomas Bellflower May 13, 2015

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah celebrates the 10th Anniversary of their debut album with a remastered reissue of the LP (including bonus tracks) and a full North American tour!

Hear Alec Ounsworth’s new, solo-acoustic version of “Let The Cool Goddess Rust Away” that debuted recently at Stereogum saying that his “voice is surprisingly intact with all the same stringent tone and suppleness, and hearing it on acoustic guitar exposes how simple and elegant the melody line is.”

Celebrating the 10th Anniversary of their debut album, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah will be touring across the USA and Canada this summer playing the album in it’s entirety along with other favorites from their catalog.

After being out of print for many years, the album has been remastered for vinyl by TW Walsh and will be available on transparent gold vinyl on June 2nd, 2015. Both CD & LP formats come with a custom download card that includes 12 all-new, solo acoustic, cassette tape recordings by the band’s lead singer and songwriter, Alec Ounsworth. The new versions were recorded on the heels of an extensive Living Room Tour with no stages or sound systems. Ounsworth wanted to record intimate versions of these songs the way he’s been playing them at shows; stripped down to just his voice and guitar with no barrier between him and the listener.

High praise for the debut album:
“The record is consistently, remarkably strong.” Pitchfork

“[An] exceptional debut.” Under The Radar

“An unpolished gem.” Q Magazine
