Dopo il flop di ‘Mosquito’ (quarto album uscito via Interscope nell’aprile del 2013) Karen O attraverso l’NME parla della situazione degli Yeah Yeah Yeahs: “We’re on a bit of hiatus at the moment, so nothing yet. We have to wait to get the urge, get that itch. The time needs to be right and we’re OK waiting for that, I think,” she said, adding that when the band do get back together “it’ll be like muscle memory, this unspoken thing between the three of us where it all just… locks in”. La 36enne artista americana reduce dal suo primo album solista ‘Crush Songs’ continua: “It’s a pretty dangerous hole to fall down, reading your own reviews, so it’s not something I personally do. All you can do is try to make albums you can stand by and be proud of, that are a snapshot of where you were at the time. It won’t stop us, nothing like that”.
