On the release of ‘Spitting Off The Edge Of The World’ several thousand Yeah Yeah Yeahs fans were able to breath a sigh of grateful relief after the band’s nine year silence suggested their last underwhelming LP ‘Mosquito’ may have been their disappointing swansong. Their latest release dispels all fears and we can confirm Karen O and pals are back on startlingly energetic form.
Created with long term producer Dave Sitek, ‘Spitting Off The Edge Of The World’ is a commentary on the climate crisis that has been shamelessly dumped in the hands of the youngest generation, the New Yorkers teaming up with Perfume Genius to create a soundscape at home in the synth-filled land of M83 and Passion Pit, while O’s familiar and unremitting vocals along with Nick Zinner’s venturesome meanderings ensure each daring change of style the group commit remains only a side-shuffle away from the youthfully indispensable riot that was their 2003 debut ‘Fever To Tell’.
Yeah Yeah Yeahs have announced a brand new album to be released on 30th September 2022, entitled ‘Cool It Down’. You can preorder ‘Cool It Down’ on bandcamp now in a whole range of beautiful forms. Here’s the record’s tracklisting:
1. Spitting Off The Edge Of The World – feat. Perfume Genius
