Yeah Yeah Yeahs have announced an early release for their upcoming album, It's Blitz due to a leak. The band explained:

The cat's out of the bag after IT'S BLITZ! escaped from our clutches into the big bad world last week. Why should some have and some have-not? YYYs have been brimming with nervous excitement in anticipation of releasing this record to the world! Leaks are NO FUN but it's out of our hands. Can't help but ask ourselves, "What would the PHILOSOPHER do in times such as these?" We now present PART II of the SNAKESWEAT TRILOGY, Mr. Brian Chase soothing our troubled souls in THE PHILOSOPHER. LUV YYYs

The album will be available digitally on March 9th and 10th in Europe and the US respectively. A physical release is set for March 31, 2009 in the US.
