Yeah Yeah Yeahs are back, baby! Yes sir, they've just announced a brand new album called Cool It Down, due out September 30 via a freshly-inked new deal with Secretly Canadian. The first single is the Perfume Genius-featuring 'Spitting Off The Edge Of The World' and it's produced by Dave Sitek, marking the first piece of new music since their 2013 album Mosquito. Have a watch of the music video, directed by Cody Critcheloe below.
In a statement accompanying the single, Karen O said:
"To all who have waited, our dear fans, thank you, our fever to tell has returned, and writing these songs came with its fair share of chills, tears, and euphoria when the pain lifts and truth is revealed. Don’t have to tell you how much we’ve been going through in the last nine years since our last record, because you've been going through it too, and we love you and we see you, and we hope you feel the feels from the music we’ve made. No shying away from the feels, or backing down from what’s been gripping all of us these days. So yes we’ve taken our time, happy to report when it’s ready it really does just flow out."
The band is, of course, heading to Australia for a handful of upcoming shows, including a headline spot at Splendour In The Grass.
