Clap Your Hands Say Yeah have returned with their first new album since 2017's The Tourist. Today, they've announced plans for a follow-up titled New Fragility, which will arrive through CYHSY/Secretly Distribution.

Ahead of the album's release on January 29, they're offering up two new singles, "Hesitating Nation" and "Thousand Oaks."

"These songs are politically motivated, which is unusual for me," frontman Alec Ounsworth said of the double A-sides in a release.

As for the album, he explained, "It's about what I think we're all experiencing at the moment, certainly here in the United States anyway — trying to move forward amidst an almost cruel uncertainty."

The album was produced by Ounsworth with additional production by Will Johnson. It was recorded by Britton Beisenherz, mixed by John Agnello and mastered by Greg Calbi.
