Last week, Karen O spoke to The New York Times about performing live. “Disarming is another speciality of what I try to do with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs,” she said of her role as a frontwoman. “I’m being absolutely ridiculous, quite overtly sexual, totally heart-on-my-sleeve. I’m going to steamroll you, and you’re going to like it.”
Last month the band shared their fiery single ‘Burning’. The track followed the New York City trio’s comeback single ‘Spitting Off The Edge Of The World’ (feat. Perfume Genius), which was released in June. Both songs feature on the band’s forthcoming album ‘Cool It Down’, their first new record in nine years.
The band are set to release ‘Cool It Down’, the follow-up to 2013’s ‘Mosquito‘ on September 30 via Secretly Canadian. In a five-star review of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Manchester show, NME noted that when played live, the new songs from their upcoming album “hint at big, widescreen pop, and pent-up emotion”.
Yeah Yeah Yeahs are currently on tour with upcoming dates in New York City and Los Angeles. View the full itinerary and ticket details here.
