Cool, cool, cool, Nu Yoik trio Yeah Yeah Yeahs have been busy making a new album but today they found the time to write a little blog about it.
New York City, with all its shopping cart pushing mentalists and chewing gum dotted concrete, wasn't where Karen, Nick and the other one wanted to make their new record. Instead the band decided to work all over the US, from a barn in the Northeast to a ranch in the Southwest. Well, you probably would if you could too?
The band haven't said a great deal about it yet but today posted a blog about the influence of non-atomic kittens on their new record:
"Fuzzy soft muses aka kittens have played a major role in the writing process of YYYs current and past records. Show Your Bones was written in Sam Spiegel's home studio amidst the birth of a litter of kittens, little gold lions scrambling around. Amazingly therapeutic, nothing turns a frown upside down (there are many frowns in the record writing process) as a purring kitten in your lap. Alas our favorite kitten of all beloved SQUEAKER arrived just in time for record three! Abandoned by his mother, we've watched him grow before our very eyes from a blind and helpless little thing into a frisky and fierce little beauty- much like the tunes we're writing. Go figure."
DiS hopes to learn more about the album nearer the release date, whenever that might be...
