This week's download comes from Clap Your Hands Say Yeah fourth studio album called Only Run. Clap Your Hands Say Yeah are celebrating 10 years as a band. The new album features guests like Matt Berninger from The National and Kid Koala. Only Run was self-released by the band.
Only Run aims to loosely document Ounsworth’s observations of his life in music over the last 10 years. “Lately, I’ve been assaulted by news, both distant and near, that suggests a certain sense of frustration,” he says. “But Clap Your Hands Say Yeah—the entire concept of the band, the name itself—is about balancing optimism in the face of overwhelming odds. I’m coming around to this myself — finding that renewed sense of optimism.”
You have a week to download the track "As Always" from Clap Your Hands Say Yeah's latest album. You can also check out the official music video below.
