Yeah Yeah Yeahs are set to release their new album, Mosquito, April 16th, 2013!
“We would love for this music to make our fans feeeeel something, for it to stir some shit up inside of them, whatever that may be,” says singer Karen O. “SO much feeling went into this record, it was the rope ladder thrown down into the ditch for us to climb up and dust ourselves off. I hope others can climb up it too; we’re excited to share the good vibes.”
Mosquito is produced by Dave Sitek and Nick Launay (working separately), with one track produced by James Murphy. The bulk of it was recorded at Sonic Ranch in Tornilla, TX. Dr. Octagon (Kool Keith) appears on one track.
“We took a more playful, LO-FI approach to songwriting,” says O. “Much of the music was demoed in our little basement studio in Manhattan with drum machines, a shitty sample keyboard and tons of delay – which we called the soup.
“I think this record has more moodier and tripped-out songs than you’ve ever heard from us,” she continues. “You might catch some roots reggae and minimalist psychedelia influences in there.”
