Clap Your Hands Say Yeah shared the single, “Where They Perform Miracles (Acoustic).” The new track is a stripped-down rendition of a song off CYHSY’s 2021 album New Fragility, set for a deluxe edition release.

CYHSY mastermind Alec Ounsworth drew inspiration for “Where They Perform Miracles” after doing alternative healing fieldwork in Mexico. “Where They Perform Miracles (Acoustic)” features Ounsworth on piano.

Alec detailed the distilled version of “Where They Perform Miracles” in a press release:

I took a stab at rearranging for piano a song from the last album to show what’s underneath, take them to their purest form. I wanted the most authentic, honest feeling, closest possible to the moment I wrote them which happens mostly in the place where I live. So I recorded them with bass player Todd at home, then Britton Beisenherz who also engineered the original album to give some depth in the studio by passing it through tape. That’s it.

Alec Ounsworth is bringing the Clap Your Hand Say Yeah band out on the road in 2022, which will see the CYHSY throughout North America and Europe. Find their tour dates below.
