Yeah Yeah Yeahs have announced that their new album will be arriving in spring 2013.

Writing on Instagram with the image above, the band put: "DNA upgrades, spontaneous evolution and NEW YEAH YEAH YEAHS RECORD ARRIVING SPRING 2013! finally." The album will be the trio’s fourth full-length studio album and follows 2009’s 'It’s Blitz!'.

Earlier this month (December 8), Yeah Yeah Yeahs made their live return in New York, performing new material to a crowd of just 70 people.

The band performed live at the Union Pool venue as part of a benefit show for the victims of Hurricane Sandy. All money raised from the gig was donated to Waves 4 Water. Support on the night came from Higgins Waterproof Blackmagic, a side project from TV On The Radio's Tunde Adebimpe.

Running through a potted history of their back catalogue including early tracks like 'Art Star' and 'Black Tongue' and material from 'It's Blitz!', they also played one new track titled 'Despair', which has been described by Spin as "a spare thumper that recalled Florence and the Machine's 'Dog Days Are Over'".

The trio are set to play a string of dates in Australia in January. No UK dates have been announced as yet.
