YEAH YEAH YEAHS SCRAP SONGS FOR SECOND ALBUM

The YEAH YEAH YEAHS have decided to scrap all of the songs recorded for their anticipated second album – because the tracks sounded too much like their previous work. The bandmembers have been working hard on the follow-up to their breakthrough 2002 debut album FEVER TO TELL, which they now say will arrive in the autumn (05) following the overhaul. Singer KAREN O says, “We’re not interested in making ‘Fever To Tell Part 2’. The pressure is to re-invent ourselves. We don’t know how we’re going to do it yet but I think it’s in our best interests to try and explore other directions.”
Guitarist NICK ZINNER adds, “It seems like a necessary step and the obvious thing to do is not repeat what you’ve played. I was disappointed by a lot of band’s second records recently over the past year or two because it sounded like B-sides from the first record.”
