As promised, Yeah Yeah Yeahs unveiled the first taste of Mosquito on BBC Radio 1 this afternoon, premiering the album’s lead single, “Sacrilege”. It’s one spicy little rocker which features a 20-person gospel choir. Needless to say, somebody’s been listening to “Gimme Shelter”. Check out the official audio below.
