The first new Yeah Yeah Yeahs song in nearly a decade is dropping next week.
The track is titled “Spitting Off the Edge of the World” and features indie pop artist Perfume Genius. It’ll premiere Wednesday, June 1, and is available to presave now.
In announcing the news, the “Maps” outfit declares, “We present to you with heads bowed and fists in the air ‘Spitting Off the Edge of the World’ featuring [Perfume Genius] out June 1.”
“Spitting Off the Edge of the World” marks the first fresh material from Karen O and company since their last album, Mosquito, was released all the way back in 2013.
The song will arrive just ahead of Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ upcoming U.K. tour, which launches June 5. The group will play Montreal’s Osheaga festival in July and Chicago’s Riot Fest in September, followed by headlining dates in New York City and Los Angeles in September.
