the The band hasn’t confirmed plans to release new work, but Karen admitted that 2020 seems like the perfect time.

“All I can say is that I feel ready to write songs,” she told Australian radio station Double J. That’s about all I have to say.

“It feels like the time has come to release something new. However, that hasn’t happened yet and we’ll have to watch how this year unfolds.”

“Mosquito”, the group’s last album, was released in 2013.

It’s not just the band’s huge news. Recently, it was reported that Nick Zinner, guitarist of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, will release his extensive instrumental piece 41 Strings digitally and on vinyl. The four movements of the piece correspond to the four seasons. It will be released on July 1 by Zinner’s Yeah Yeah Yeahs band member Brian Chase’s Chaikin Records. Below, listen to “Fall” from the project.

Zinner created 41 Strings in New York City in 2011, as part of a commission commemorating the 41st anniversary of Earth Day. Since then, he has only performed the piece publicly three times. The album version was recorded in May 2011 at Hoboken, New Jersey’s Water Music. Aku Orraca-Tetteh, David Pajo, Siebren Versteeg, Nick Zinner and Joshua Zucker are among the guitarists featured on the 41 Strings album, as are bassist Andy Macleod and drummer Brian Chase.

Zinner has collaborated on new material with Damon Albarn for the Africa Express collective in the years since he originally shared 41 Strings. He also played guitar on Karen O and Willie Nelson’s duet performance of Queen’s “Under Pressure”.
