Alec Ounsworth will soon back with a new Clap Your Hands Say Yeah album, titled The Tourist, which drops February 24. Ounsworth made the record at Dr. Dog's studio in Philadelphia with Dave Fridmann on mixing duties. "The album was a type of purge,” says Ounsworth. “A purge of certain emotional confusion that manifested itself in the last several years. It was not an easy album to make, by virtue of the fact that it was an emotional time for me." You can stream slinky lead single "Fireproof" below.

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah will be on tour in 2017, including a show at NYC's Le Poisson Rouge on March 4. Tickets are on sale now. All dates are listed below.
