The first time I heard “Maps” (off the excellent Fever To Tell record) was back in 2004; I was a fresh-faced junior in high school, ready to grow up, ready to take on the world. Fast forward almost nine years (yikes) and I’m not a complete haggard and jaded wreck, but a lot has changed since then. What has not changed, however, is my undying love for this song. There’s a lot of reasons to keep it on your iPod and playlists, but today is especially appropriate because today, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs confirmed that they would be releasing a NEW album in Spring 2013!! Not yet titled, the LP would be their fourth full-length and the first piece of new material since It’s Blitz three years ago. Everyone rejoice and be glad!
