The Oscars are over and done, and although it couldn’t have quite matched the power of "Skyfall," Karen O’s lovely little ditty from the movie Frankenweenie was sadly overlooked. But fans of Karen O and her group, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, have no reason to feel down. This week, the trio previewed a new song from their upcoming album, Mosquito, due out on Interscope this April.
The Yeah-Times-Three get a little funky on new Dave Sitek and Nick Launay-produced single "Sacrilege," which sports a grooving beat and a gospel feel to match the religious title. As a matter of fact, a 24-piece gospel choir backs the song, at times Sly and the Family Stone-revelatory and at times a little eerie. It’s almost like a burned-out future version of the finale from the musical Hair, which is a compliment, I promise. Listen below.
