Yeah Yeah Yeahs have announced that their new album 'Mosquito' will be released on April 15, 2013.

'Mosquito' will be the band's fourth LP and the follow-up to 2009's 'It's Blitz'. It sees the band again working with long-time producer David Sitek and Nick Launay, and was recorded at Sonic Ranch in Tornillo, Texas, where 'It's Blitz' was recorded.

One track is produced by LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy and features Dr Octagon. The artwork was designed by Beomsik Shimbe Shim – scroll down to see it.

Speaking exclusively to NME about the album in this week's magazine, which will hit newsstands on Wednesday (January 16) and will also be available digitally, singer Karen O said "Well…it’s definitely different from the last album. So I guess you could say that hasn’t changed about us! It’s all over the place. The sound of the record is, I guess, a bit more lo-fi sounding and slightly more influenced by roots reggae. There's a lot of delay on stuff and there’s a more raw sound to it than there was last time."

She added: "There's probably more bass on this record than all the other records combined. But there's also plenty of guitar. It's a bit more tripped out than our other records." Scroll down and click to see a video teaser for the album.
