The new album sees Yeah Yeah Yeahs again working with producer David Sitek and Nick Launay.
LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy takes the production seat on one of the tracks and features Dr Octagon.
Speaking exclusively to NME about the album in this week’s magazine singer Karen O said:
“Well…it’s definitely different from the last album. So I guess you could say that hasn’t changed about us! It’s all over the place. The sound of the record is, I guess, a bit more lo-fi sounding and slightly more influenced by roots reggae. There’s a lot of delay on stuff and there’s a more raw sound to it than there was last time.”
She added: “There’s probably more bass on this record than all the other records combined. But there’s also plenty of guitar. It’s a bit more tripped out than our other records.”
