Yeah Yeah Yeahs stream new album 'Mosquito' ahead of release

The Yeah Yeah Yeahs are currently streaming their upcoming fourth album 'Mosquito' on YouTube.

Scroll down to listen to record, which is set for release on April 15. The follow-up to 2009's 'It's Blitz!', 'Mosquito' sees the band again working with long-time producers David Sitek and Nick Launay, and was recorded at Sonic Ranch in Tornillo, Texas.

Introducing the album for Noisey, frontwoman Karen O says "I am extremely excited about this record, excited in a way that I was back in the day, 'Fever To Tell' kind of style."

She continues: "It's kind of like a Yeah Yeah Yeahs soul record - our version of one - but also it's really playful and tongue in cheek at times. I think its got something for everyone."

Yeah Yeah Yeahs will curate I'll Be Your Mirror at London's Alexandra Palace alongside Grizzly Bear over the weekend of May 4-5. Bands confirmed for the event so far include The Walkmen, Black Lips, Real Estate, Dirty Beaches and Cass McCombs.
