Mosquito

We knew that Yeah Yeah Yeahs were going to release a new album this spring, and they've just revealed that it's called Mosquito and will be out on April 16 via Interscope. That's the amazing cover art above, designed by Beomsik Shimbe Shim. The album was largely produced by Dave Sitek (TV on the Radio) and Nick Launay, who also worked on 2009's It's Blitz!, and there's also a track produced by James Murphy and Dr. Octagon aka Kool Keith aka Dr. Dooom aka Black Elvis etc is on one.

The band also just recently performed some new material live in Pomona, CA, which you can check out videos of below (via Consequence of Sound), along with the album trailer.

Wow, this is as bad as a Primus album cover.

10:36 is right they should play that awful corporate shit pit of a venue, with terrible sound, booked by a monopoly hellbent on controlling all live music on the east coast.

He's a great artist, so his shitty album art for us is, therefore, great. Thank you.

If this album cover didn't make you chuckle, there's something wrong with you.

That is in the running for worst album cover of the year. It's like a rejected Garbage Pail Kids meets Primus drawing.

It's not a matter of opinion - that cover is just BAD!

Not bad in a good way
Not bad in a cool way
JUST BAD!

Translation: If this album cover didn't make you chuckle, you haven't eaten as many mushrooms as I did this morning.

Andrew Sacher says that this art is amazing, so it am.

So a spider is rubbing a jar of green slime all over a baby's butt?

I think they should have gone with their original album cover idea, which was a psychedelic robust hummus platter flying through space.

Mosquitoes are like Vampires
