[new]Clap Your Hands Say Yeah : Late Night Jimmy Fallon
CYHSY will be playing a new song tonight on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (march 4th). This is a bit of a surprise seeing that CYHSY announced earlier this year that they were working on their own individual projects stereogum, NME. The new song, Statues, will also be available on their website right after the show.
CYHSY's debut was one of the more influential albums this decade, if not for its innovative musicianship, its innovative DIY style of release, selling over 700k on its website alone.
It will be interesting to see how this effects the future plans of the band... last time a band debuted a song like this on a show was Grizzly Bear's Two Weeks. Obviously they had a lot of confidence in the song, and for good reason. CYHSY must have something up their sleeve worth putting out their, or maybe NBC is just trying to drum up some publicity for the new Jimmy Fallon... in either case, it will be a show work watching, or at least worth Huluing the next day.
