Yeah Yeah Yeahs: New Year, New Album…New Sound?


I haven’t heard much about Yeah Yeah Yeahs lately. It’s been a while since the July 2007 release of their EP IS IS, so I decided to find out what they are up to. Sounds like they’re working on an album that’s different than anything we’ve heard from them thus far. Here’s the scoop, straight from the band:

There is no beating the bit of news sweeping the nation at the moment but YYYs have a bit of news of our own to share. NEW RECORD? NEW RECORD!! NEW RECORD IS GETTING CLOSER TO BEING DONE DONE DONE! You still won’t be hearing it until 2009 but damn are we close to finishing it and only after a year of writing and recording! Will it sound kind of like Show Your Bones? No, been there done that. What about IS IS? Is that more of the direction it’s going in? Absolutely not, it sounds VERY different from last year’s EP. Did we go back to our roots and write something closer to Fever to Tell? No looking back now silly, just full speed ahead. WHAT DOES IT SOUND LIKE?? Not much like anything you’ve heard from us before- DOES IT SOUND LIKE THE YEAH YEAH YEAHS??? YOU BET YOU’RE SWEET ASS IT DOES. Phew, can’t wait. We can hardly wait ourselves, we miss all of you and we’ve been working extra hard on this one with the intention to make you as happy as possible. Just wanted to drop a line to let you in on how quickly we’re approaching the finishing line and to GET PSYYYYYYYYYYYYCHED.

  1. I’ve been reading along for a while now. I just wanted to drop you a comment to say keep up the good work.

  2. 2 ilya

    I’m always disappointed when celebrities speak. Take me, i’m a video editor who, when he opens his mouth, is frequently told to not speak. That’s ok, my place is to video edit. Please YYY, don’t talk. Your “release memo” sounds like confusing nonsense that makes me horribly apprehensive about your new release. Yet, what’s there to be apprehensive about? Everything you’ve put out (musically, mind you) has been exhilarating and wonderful. So maybe this could’ve been done in musical form? I’ll go back to editing.

  3. Well maybe they can send you an advance copy of the album and you can cut a 30-sec album trailer for them to use. Why must they always release just a single—why not a musical medley??
