Yeah Yeah Yeahs have announced a reissue of debut LP Fever To Tell and are streaming previously unreleased number "Shake It".

The new edition of the album - originally released in 2003 - features a completely remastered set of the original tracklisting as well as a bunch of demos and rarities. A deluxe box set contains a whole bunch of other goodies, including newsprint lyric posters, a photobook, patch, sticker, and "Champagne Cork 8GB USB Stick" featuring 29 audio tracks and various videos - check out the full list. It all comes neatly wrapped in a pair of red fishnet stockings, and the first 500 orderers get a bonus cassette featuring four additional demos.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs have been steadily coming back to life after a lengthy hiatus, with new shows in Texas and LA confirmed, and they've announced two more - another in LA and one in New York City. Yesterday the trio shared another collection of snippets - "Phone Jam", below - as they teased the new release.

"A friend of a friend kept asking if we were ever gonna put Fever To Tell out on vinyl as it hasn’t been on vinyl in 10 years. That’s not right," the band say. "So here it is on vinyl for the first time in 10 years plus a time capsule of photos, demos (first ever recorded,) a mini film documenting our near downfall and other fun memorabilia, from the turn of the century NYC, made with love and the usual blood, sweat, and tears of Yeah Yeah Yeahs."

Karen O, Nick Zinner, and Brian Chase have been on hiatus for a few years - their last album was 2013's Mosquito. Is this the beginning of the end of that silence?

The Fever To Tell reissue is out on 20 October via Interscope/UMe.
