Yeasayer will release their fifth album, Erotic Reruns, on June 7th via their own Yeasayer Records. The experimental Brooklyn trio previewed the LP with two new songs: the funky “Fluttering in the Floodlights” and dreamy “Let Me Listen in on You.”

On the former, the band cooks up a heady dance-rock groove with spiraling synthesizers and twitchy drums. Chris Keating belts an elastic hook over the shifting landscape, conjuring both Funkadelic and early Eighties Peter Gabirel in the same breath. “She’s in a movie, Felliniesque and wild,” he sings. “And she got me in a spiral, soul driver with lazurite eyes.”

Anand Wilder fronts the latter cut, crooning over spongey programmed drums, airy synths and acoustic strums. “”They’re slipping through the holes again/Those fire ants they bite,” he sings. “And they don’t make love like we used to/We don’t read by candlelight.”

Erotic Reruns also features the recently issued lead single “I’ll Kiss You Tonight.” Yeasayer will promote the record, their first since 2016’s Amen & Goodbye, on a summer North American tour that launches April 12th in Hamden, Connecticut and wraps July 13th in New York, New York, followed by a brief run of international festival dates.
