Nick Zinner of Yeah Yeah Yeahs joins Sarah Smith on Bright Lights, ahead of the band’s first shows back in Australia for a decade. Nick reflects on the band’s history, discussing what inspired them to record their latest album Cool It Down and how the trio have embraced creative tensions over the years. Nick also talks about the moment ‘Maps’ became a world-conquering hit, why he still loves playing the song live, and reveals his deep admiration for Karen O - whose talent as a frontwoman and songwriting force still blows his mind.
