As promised, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs will release their fourth studio album this spring, following 2009’s very good record It’s Blitz!. The new one, titled Mosquito, is out on April 16 through Interscope. (And yes, that’s an actual mosquito on the cover, which was designed by filmmaker/animator Beomsik Shimbe Shim).
Like the last record, Mosquito was produced by Dave Sitek of TV on the Radio and Nick Launay. One of the tracks was produced by James Murphy and features– wait for it– Dr. Octagon (aka Kool Keith).
Watch a trailer for the album:
Over the weekend, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs performed a couple of new songs live in Pomona, California. Watch below:
