Scroll down to listen to record, which is set for release on April 15. The follow-up to 2009’s ‘It’s Blitz!’, ‘Mosquito’ sees the band again working with long-time producers David Sitek and Nick Launay, and was recorded at Sonic Ranch in Tornillo, Texas.
Introducing the album for Noisey, frontwoman Karen O says “I am extremely excited about this record, excited in a way that I was back in the day, ‘Fever To Tell’ kind of style.”
She continues: “It’s kind of like a Yeah Yeah Yeahs soul record – our version of one – but also it’s really playful and tongue in cheek at times. I think its got something for everyone.”
Yeah Yeah Yeahs will curate I’ll Be Your Mirror at London’s Alexandra Palace alongside Grizzly Bear over the weekend of May 4-5. Bands confirmed for the event so far include The Walkmen, Black Lips, Real Estate, Dirty Beaches and Cass McCombs.
