Yeah Yeah Yeahs announce release of new "tripped-out" album, Mosquito

The Yeah Yeah Yeahs have announced the release of a new album, Mosquito, due out April 16. The band's goal with Mosquito, as lead singer Karen O said in a press release, is to make the fans "feeeeel something": "SO much feeling went into this record," she wrote. "It was the rope ladder thrown down into the ditch for us to climb up and dust ourselves off." O added that the album—which reunites them with longtime producer Dave Sitek, as well as Nick Launay and (on one track) LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy—boasts "more moodier and tripped-out songs than you've ever heard from us," with O throwing around words like "lo-fi" and "delay," and even saying, "You might catch some roots reggae and minimalist psychedelia influences in there." Possibly confirming that "tripped-out" vibe, at least one song apparently features rapper Kool Keith, and that's the actual album cover below.
