Provided the world doesn't end this week, we all have something to look forward to in 2013: A new Yeah Yeah Yeahs album! After a slew of exciting recent activity (frontwoman Karen O headlining Intel's Creators Project in March, a Hurricane Sandy benefit performance in NYC in December) the band announced via Twitter that fans can expect a new record "ARRIVING SPRING 2013!" All caps = very serious.

The upcoming album will be the first new material from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs after 2009's Grammy-nominated It's Blitz! No word on how frontwoman (and newlywed) Karen O's bangs are preparing for the band's fourth studio album, but we'll keep you posted.
