Yeah Yeah Yeahs ‘fun’ rap track
THE Yeah Yeah Yeahs included rapper Dr Octagon on a song for their new album, ‘Mosquito’, to make it more fun.
The ‘Heads Will Roll’ band have a track with Dr Octagon on their fourth record ‘Mosquito’, and singer Karen O was keen to include him as they wanted to embrace new styles for the record.
She said: “We really wanted to have as much fun as we could with the writing and collaborating with people and push ourselves to do things we hadn’t done before. I’ve always fancied a rapper to be on a YYYs track so we got him to do it.”
The band also worked with LCD Soundsystem musician James Murphy on another track, which has a “trippy” sound.BANG!
