Some exciting news for Yeasayer fans: following the relatively abrupt release of single “Henrietta” last week, Yeasayer has already followed up with the details of their third LP. The album is titled Fragrant World, and will release on August 21st.

Speaking to Under the Radar, band member Anand Wilder unveiled some of what to expect from the album, and it may surprise some fans. He explained, “I wanted to make a record that was legitimately, to use a bad word, funky. Listening to Teddy Pendergrass and then Aaliyah records. Something that legitimately has a sway to it, tempos I call mid-tempo come-ons, BPM ranges that you’re seeing in more R&B kind of stuff and some really sub-y bass tones.”

Intruiging, to say the least. Check out the tracklist below, and listen to “Henrietta”. Beneath that you can also see the dates of a small pre-album tour the band is heading out on.
