Yeah Yeah Yeahs are to release a "very different" album.

The 'Maps' rockers are preparing to release their first record since 2006's 'Show Your Bones' and have promised fans a departure from the sound they are used to.

Posting on their MySpace blog, the band wrote: "New record is getting closer to being done done done! You still won't be hearing it until 2009 but damn, are we close to finishing it, and only after a year of writing and recording!

"Will it sound kind of like 'Show Your Bones'? No, been there done that. What about [2007 EP] 'Is Is'? Is that more of the direction it's going in? Absolutely not, it sounds VERY different.

"Did we go back to our roots and write something closer to our first album, 'Fever to Tell'? No looking back now, just full speed ahead.

"What does it sound like? Not much like anything you've heard from us before. Does it sound like the Yeah Yeah Yeahs? You bet your sweet a** it does."

No release date has yet been confirmed for the untitled album.
