The first official single off of It's Blitz! is a dance-inspired number that has Karen O telling us to "get our leather on." As the Yeah Yeah Yeahs front woman told Rolling Stone, the new record is “Less angst and more positivity, man!” Just the cure for the recession doldrums.
Also unveiled with the music is the artwork for the single (above) as well as the full track listing (below) of the April 14 release. We have yet to form an opinion besides the Yeah Yeah Yeahs image has definitely not taken a hit during their time off. Only time will tell if it has affected their songwriting beyond a super-produced dance track that highlights very little of Nick or Brian. Until then, check out "Zero" and let's all hold our collective breaths before we get all Animal Collective with this record.
