Yeah Yeah Yeahs have offered details on their upcoming fourth studio album. Mosquito arrives April 16th via Interscope Records, having reportedly been recorded in New York alongside TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek (who worked with the band on 2009′s It’s Blitz!). Hipster aficionados will crack their Ray-Bans with glee at the news that LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy produced a track as well.
Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O discussed the recording process with Pitchfork, and by the sound of things the process was more a labor of love than a celebration of new creation:
"We have this little shitty studio downtown [in New York] that belongs to us, so we wrote songs and recorded demos whenever we felt inspired," she explained. "It was kind of like how we did Fever to Tell and our first demo. And emotionally, it’s been a rollercoaster– being back in New York is intense for me. I’ve gone through an identity crisis. It’s been very emotionally intense for Nick, too. He was going through a break-up while we were making the album. It was just all kind of down."
