Yeasayer O.N.E. Album cover for Odd Blood

Yeasayer are preparing to release their sophomore long player, Odd Blood on February 8 through Secret Canadian. You can see the trippy artwork for Odd Blood above. The album cover’s trippy make up is reminiscent of the music video for the fantastic “Ambling Alp”, and is a motif that runs through the core of Odd Blood.

“O.N.E.” is Odd Blood‘s midpoint, succeeding four mind-bending opening tracks, and it acts as a proper turning point for the album (you’ll see). As soon as “ONE” starts, the raw kinetic energy Yeasayer is piling onto this track is tangible, something you’re sure to embrace while you listen to Odd  Blood. I’m willing to bet that “O.N.E.” will be 2010’s “My Girls” moment, early on.

However, “O.N.E.” and “My Girls” have very little in common. “O.N.E.” is irreverent, almost uncoordinated. It’s a small, excited child bursting with energy and charm; unpredictably throwing fits one minute and acting like a little angel the next.

UPDATE: Yeasayer are now giving away “O.N.E.” for free. Download the track below:
