A Yeah Yeah Yeahs new album is imminent! The Karen O- fronted New York group revealed on their Facebook page today that Mosquito, a long awaited follow up to 2009’s It’s Blitz!, will drop on April 16.

The group revealed their return with a message that read: “Man! the years whiz past but the days are long, at long last MOSQUITO will drop APRIL 16th! Really in NO time so keep your eyes and ears peeled cuz you'll be seeing us around son! Thanks for tuning in! They don't love you like we do... luv YYYs” Well alright! 2013 is certainly setting up to be some year for music with many major stars from David Bowie to Justin Timberlake and Destiny’s Child already announcing their returns – do they all know something we don’t?

Accompanying the news, Yeah Yeah Yeahs posted a teaser video on YouTube, which you can watch below. Across three albums, the group have become one of the most-loved on both sides of the Atlantic, achieving both Billboard and UK chart success. In 2009 the NME rated their debut album, 2003’s Fever To Tell, as the fifth best album of the last decade, whilst all three of their records have been up for Grammy Awards, losing out only to more mainstream pop artists. With striking front woman Karen O at the helm, their return after a four year gap is a welcome one indeed.
