Yeah Yeah Yeahs to release new album in spring 2013

Yeah Yeah Yeahs are set to release a new album in the spring of next year, according to reports.

Speaking on Los Angeles radio station KCRW, Jason Bentley – who hosts the Morning Becomes Eclectic show – said that the band would be releasing the follow-up to 2009's It's Blitz! in the "springtime" of 2013.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs have released three albums, 2003's Fever To Tell, 2006's Show Your Bone and It's Blitz!.

James Murphy, formerly of LCD Soundsystem, recently denied that he was producing the new Yeah Yeah Yeahs album. In an interview with the Huffington Post, he said: "I just did a little fun stuff. Nothing really big; I don't have time and they don't have time."

He added: "I think they're done with their record now, I was just fussing around. I didn't make their album. They're just friends."

At the end of last year the band's frontwoman Karen O revealed that she and her bandmates had started working on new music.

Speaking to The Sun, O said she had "been tinkering around on some new Yeah Yeah Yeahs music with the boys."
