New Yeah Yeah Yeahs CD Due In Late March
New York rock trio the Yeah Yeah Yeahs will return on March 28 with its second Interscope album, “Show Your Bones,” according to a label spokesperson. First single “Gold Lion” will be commercially released a week earlier in the United Kingdom. The set was produced by Squeak E Clean and mixed by rock veteran Alan Moulder.
The set is the follow-up to 2003’s “Fever To Tell,” which peaked at No. 55 on The Billboard 200 and has sold 524,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It spawned the single “Maps,” which reached No. 9 on Billboard’s Modern Rock chart.
“‘Show Your Bones’ is what happens when you put your finger in a light socket,” singer Karen O says of the album name. “Maybe there is some of that electric current flowing through the tracks of our album illuminating us from the inside out for you to laugh at and cry to or fry to. Or not.”
The group is planning a small-club tour of North America in February in advance of “Show Your Bones.” Beyond that, the only event on its schedule comes May 14 as part of the U.K.’s All Tomorrow’s Parties festival. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs will perform alongside their own handpicked roster of acts, including TV On The Radio, Oneida, Liars, Blood Brothers and Ex Models.
