Whoa. We just got our first taste of what Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ have been up to since 2009’s It’s Blitz, and did the words “Gospel Choir” spring to mind when you clicked on this article? Well if they did you’ll pleasantly surprised (and we should go to Atlantic City sometime), because the seminal early aughts New York trio has taken yet another leap forward in their sonic scope as sampled in the burning guitar lines and explosive rhythmic and vocal bursts on lead single “Sacrilege”.
From the upcoming studio return Mosquito, Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Karen O took to BBC’s Radio 1 airwaves to share the latest track which she particularly delighted in the recording experience with the 24 piece vocal powerhouse assembled for the recording. Stream the searing “Sacrilege” below and keep it tuned for all the latest on Yeah Yeah Yeahs and upcoming summer dates.
