They'll play a gig together in May
The James Murphy-led band released their comeback album ‘American Dream’ last September, their first record in seven years.
They will play a trio of East Coast shows in April and May ahead of their upcoming UK and European tour. Tickets go on sale this Friday (January 26).
Now it’s been revealed that Yeah Yeah Yeahs will support the band at their show at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl on May 4, while TV On The Radio will open for the band at the Greek Theater in Berkeley on April 27.
Yeah Yeah Yeahs will also join the likes of LCD Soundsystem and Björk at London’s All Points East Festival this summer. The Victoria Park festival runs from May 25-27.
Yeah Yeah Yeahs singer Karen O recently returned with a brand new track featuring guest vocals from Michael Kiwanuka. The new track, ’YO! MY SAINT’, is released in support of fashion house KENZO’s Spring Summer 18 collection.
Karen O, who is half South Korean, said: “When I thought of the muses for Humberto and Carol being this Japanese artist and model, it just sparked this other side of my imagination, which is the Asian melodrama that’s within me.”
“For the music, I immediately wanted to do melodramatic and romantic and with lots of yearning and high stakes – all that good stuff that’s in any Korean soap opera. It just started owing through me.”
She added: “I wanted there to be something authentically romantic about it in some kind of slightly unconventional way. That’s where my head went with it.”
