Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ It’s Blitz! Album Art

We told you the punk-ass name of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ third album at the end of last month: It’s Blitz! now has cover art to call its own. Beyond the packaging, the collection was produced by past collaborators Dave Sitek and Nick Launay and Nick Zinner showed up to the party with a pile of vintage synthesizers. Others additions to the usual lineup include TV On The Radio’s Tunde Adebimpe and Kyp Malone, YYY touring member Imaad Wasif (aka the only man in the world skinnier than Nick Zinner), and Antibalas saxophonist Stuart Bogie, etc. As far as the album cover? Lots of protein.

The photo has done the impossible: Made me think about the Bullet Boys for the first time since before grunge happened. Remember to check out the band at Coachella and/or Bonnaroo.

It’s Blitz! is out in April via Interscope. The first single’s called “Zero.”
