Album en route from
sometime in 2009.
By Fred Mills
According to a blog posting yesterday afternoon at the Yeah
Yeah Yeahs’ official MySpace page the NYC band is polishing off its next album.
The followup to 2006’s Show Your Bones is projected for a 2009 release (no month listed yet) and is described as “very
different from last year’s EP” (Is Is,
issued by Fontana in July 2007).
“What does it sound like?” continues the band, in the
posting. “Not much like anything you’ve heard from us before. Does it sound
like the Yeah Yeah Yeahs? You bet you’re [sic]
sweet ass it does.”
And you know we love the Yeah Yeah Yeahs –
grammar-challenged or otherwise – so we’ll be banging on the YYY mainline when
the time comes. You can bet you’re [sic]
sweet ass on that. See below for the entire blog posting.

There is no beating the
bit of news sweeping the nation at the moment but YYYs have a bit of news of
our own to share. NEW RECORD? NEW RECORD!! NEW RECORD IS GETTING CLOSER
TO BEING DONE DONE DONE! You still won’t be hearing it until 2009 but damn
are we close to finishing it and only after a year of writing and recording!
Will it sound kind of like Show Your Bones? No, been there done that.
What about IS IS? Is that more of the direction it’s going in?
Absolutely not, it sounds VERY different from last year’s EP. Did we go
back to our roots and write something closer to Fever to Tell? No looking
back now silly, just full speed ahead. WHAT DOES IT SOUND LIKE?? Not much
like anything you’ve heard from us before- DOES IT SOUND LIKE THE YEAH YEAH
YEAHS/wp-content/photos YOU BET YOU’RE SWEET ASS IT DOES. Phew, can’t wait. We can hardly
wait ourselves, we miss all of you and we’ve been working extra hard on this
one with the intention to make you as happy as possible. Just wanted to
drop a line to let you in on how quickly we’re approaching the finishing line
and to GET PSYYYYYYYYYYYYCHED.
