After teasing a new song last week, Yeah Yeah Yeahs have delivered that and more.
As promised, the track, titled “Spitting Off the Edge of the World,” is out today and features indie pop artist Perfume Genius. Not only that, but Karen O and company have also announced their first album in nine years, Cool It Down.
“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,” O says of the upcoming record. “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.”
O adds, “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.”
Cool It Down will be released September 30. In the meantime, you can listen to “Spitting Off the Edge of the World” now via digital outlets and watch its accompanying video streaming now on YouTube.
Yeah Yeah Yeahs 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 October.
