Yeah Yeah Yeahs return with It’s Blitz…and an Animal Collective remix

Karen O and company’s latest release It’s Blitz is currently available as a digital download only here.  There’s tons of combo packages available for pre-order there as well (CD’s ship 3/31, vinyl ships 4/14), but if you dig vinyl and you want to get a bonus 7″ featuring an Animal Collective remix (say wha!??) of the album’s first single “Zero,” then order from Insound. Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiice.  

As for the album, it sways between discotheque anthems, heavy Nick Zinner guitar-driven rock, and haunting string-section infused ballads.  The dance tunes shine, especially “Heads Will Roll” (below).

A bunch of European dates are on the books, but only three U.S. festivals (Coachella, Sasquatch and Bonnaroo) for now.  All dates below.  

Turn it up.
