Singer-songwriter Alec Ounsworth, of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, has announced the upcoming release of Mo Beauty. The Philadelphia native recently recorded his solo debut in the music-steeped metropolis of New Orleans at the famed Piety St. recording studio.

The album was produced by veteran musician/producer and fellow Philadelphian Steve Berlin (Los Lobos, Blasters, John Lee Hooker, The Replacements), who initially suggested the New Orleans setting.

2. Bones in the Grave
3. Holy, Holy, Holy Moses (song for New Orleans)
4. That is not my Home (after Bruegel)
