Yeah Yeah Yeahs have revealed their new single ‘Sacrilege’.

Click below to listen to the track, which features a gospel choir, and will be the first single from new album ‘Mosquito’, which is set for release on April 15. 


‘Mosquito’ is the band’s fourth LP and the follow-up to 2009’s ‘It’s Blitz!’. It sees the band again working with long-time producers David Sitek and Nick Launay, and was recorded at Sonic Ranch in Tornillo, Texas.

’Sacrilege’ follows the band’s ‘Mosquito’ teaser which featured another new song, ‘Always’.



Speaking to NME about the album, singer Karen O said, “Well… it’s definitely different from the last album. So I guess you could say that hasn’t changed about us! It’s all over the place. The sound of the record is, I guess, a bit more lo-fi sounding and slightly more influenced by roots reggae. There’s a lot of delay on stuff and there’s a more raw sound to it than there was last time.”



The band have confirmed an appearance at SXSW this year. The band will perform at Stubb’s in Austin, Texas on March 13, on a bill that also features Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds.

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.


Yeah Yeah Yeahs will play:


Manchester O2 Apollo (May 1)

Leeds O2 Academy (2)

London Alexandra Palace (4)
