July sees release of five new songs and short film
Yeah Yeah Yeahs are set to release a new EP ’Is Is’ on July 23.
All the songs on the five-track collection were written in 2004 while touring their debut LP ’Fever To Tell’, with four of the five tracks appearing on the DVD ’Tell Me What Rockers To Swallow’.
The EP was produced by Nick Launay. Speaking about their choice of collaborator, frontwoman Karen O told NME: “(He) was the natural choice having produced PIL’s ’Flowers Of Romance’, collectively a favourite between us.”
Accompanying the EP will be a special live film, which was recorded on at their two-night stand at Grasslands Gallery in Brooklyn on May 7.
The artwork was done by Julian Gross from Liars.
The tracklisting is:
‘Rockers To Swallow’
’10 X 10′
The EP will be available on CD, double gatefold vinyl, single track download and digital bundle.
