Yeah Yeah Yeahs Have Early Contender for Year’s Craziest Album Cover

Horrors from Beomsik Shimbe Shim

The Yeah Yeah Yeahs have a new album, Mosquito, coming out April 16, and it's already getting tons of attention—partly for its insane album cover. South Korean filmmaker and animator Beomsik Shimbe Shim did the design, and it's certainly eye-catching—with the eponymous mosquito proving to be more than your average pest. The naked child under attack, meanwhile, seems to have been feeding from a jar of "YYYs." Interpretations, anyone? Via Pitchfork.
