We've never seen violence against breakfast food go so right -- the Yeah Yeah Yeahs are making a serious play for best album art of 2009 with the cover of their upcoming It's Blitz! and it's only February. Warning: this is not for faint-of-heart-Vegans.
It's Blitz! is the band's third studio album, produced by TV on the Radio's David Sitek (who's worked on the two previous albums) and Nick Launay, who's also worked with the band before on their 2007 Is Is EP. No official release date yet, but we can expect the album sometime this spring on Interscope.
The album has a decent list of cameos, inlcuding TVOTR frontman Tunde Adebimpe, who sings on one song with Kyp Malone on the staple of rock 'n' roll instrumentation, the tambourine. You'll also hear from Antibalas saxophonist and TVOTR member Stuart Bogie, Imaad Wasif (a member of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' touring band) and the bird and the bee's Greg Kurstin.
The first single from the album will be "Zero." If it kicks anywhere near as much ass as this album cover, we think they'll probably do okay.
