Yeasayer have announced full details of their third studio album, which is to be titled 'Fragrant World'.

The album is the follow-up to their 2010 second album 'Odd Blood' and is due for release on August 20.

The album will contain a total of 11 tracks, including 'Henrietta', which the band recently released.

That track was sent out to members of the band's mailing list, with a physical CD containing the song sent to every person who had signed up to updates from Yeasayer. You can hear the track by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.

Late last year, the band spoke about 'Fragrant World' and said that it is shaping up to be "like a demented R&B record". Multi-instrumentalist Chris Keating said of it: "It's like an Aaliyah album if you played it backwards and slowed it down. Or David Bowie's 'Lodger'. Those two are major influences."

Yeasayer will return to the UK in July to play Latitude Festival.

The tracklisting for 'Fragrant World' is as follows:

'Fingers Never Bleed'
'Longevity'
'Blue Paper'
'Henrietta'
'Devil And The Deed'
'No Bones'
'Reagan's Skeleton'
'Demon Road'
'Damaged Goods'
'Folk Hero Shtick'
'Glass of the Microscope'
