Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Nick Zinner producing new Deap Vally album

The duo say it's been a 'true honour' and 'epic adventure'

Deap Vally have revealed that they’ve been recording their second album with Nick Zinner.

The Californian duo released their debut album ‘Sistrionix’ in June 2013, recently revealing via Instagram that the follow-up will be produced by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs guitarist.

The band wrote: “Nick, it’s been a true honor and an epic adventure making this record with you. Thank you for inspiring us, pushing us to be our best, and for putting up with us. Thank you for sharing your magic with us. We kind of can’t believe it’s over. We love you and will miss you. #dreamsdocometrue #thisrecordfuckingrules #sappyvally”.

Meanwhile, Yeah Yeah Yeahs recently announced that they’re on “a bit of a hiatus”.

Speaking to NME recently, Karen O explained that the group are waiting to feel inspired before starting anything a new together. “We’re on a bit of hiatus at the moment, so nothing yet. We have to wait to get the urge, get that itch. The time needs to be right and we’re OK waiting for that, I think,” she said, adding that when the band do get back together “it’ll be like muscle memory, this unspoken thing between the three of us where it all just… locks in.”

The singer clarified that poor reviews of Yeah Yeah Yeah’s last album, 2013’s ‘Mosquito’, won’t deter them from future projects. She added: “It’s a pretty dangerous hole to fall down, reading your own reviews, so it’s not something I personally do. All you can do is try to make albums you can stand by and be proud of, that are a snapshot of where you were at the time. It won’t stop us, nothing like that.”
