Yeah Yeah Yeahs Stream ‘Mosquito’ Two Weeks Early
SPIN cover stars' biting new album drops April 16
The Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ winning streak continues. Mosquito, the hotly anticipated fourth album from New York art-rock icons (and current SPIN cover stars) the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, doesn’t arrive until April 16, but you can hear the entire full-length right now.
“I had some serious nostalgia for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs in the early 2000s,” frontwoman Karen O recently told SPIN when discussing the upcoming LP’s birth. “I had some nostalgia for why I fell in love with the idea of performing in the first place. Frontmen like Jon Spencer and Lux Interior, and PJ Harvey. Strong, fun people who ignite some sort of fantasy with their charisma and the sexuality.”
We’ve already heard Mosquito’s gospel-assisted lead single, “Sacrilege,” as well as the dubby “Under the Earth,” and over the last few months, SPIN has caught live performances of new tracks “Despair,” “Subway,” and “Mosquito.” Now fans can enjoy the trio’s latest 11-track metamorphosis in all its ragged, dreamy glory.
