Their second album, Show Your Bones, was released on March 27–28, 2006. The album’s producer, Sam Spiegel – who had previously collaborated with Karen O on the song “Hello Tomorrow” for an Adidas commercial directed by Sam’s brother Jonze – told MTV News that it was a concept album about Karen’s cat, and would be titled Coco Beware. However, MTV was forced to retract the story, noting that Spiegel had failed to mention that he was joking. Karen O told online zine Drowned in Sound, “Show Your Bones is what happens when you put your finger in a light socket,” crediting “9 year old antigenius wonder-kid Drake Barrett for the insight.”The first single from the album, “Gold Lion”, was released on March 20, 2006, reaching 18 in the Official UK Singles Chart. It has been noted by Leah Greenblatt that “Gold Lion” sounds startlingly similar to “No New Tale To Tell” from 1980s alternative band Love and Rockets.The band toured throughout Europe and the United States during much of 2006, and also helped to curate an edition of the British All Tomorrow’s Parties festival. In December 2006, the album was named the second best album of the year by NME magazine, as well as “Cheated Hearts” being voted the 10th best song. Rolling Stone magazine named it the 44th best album of 2006, while Spin magazine ranked it number 31 on their 40 best albums of 2006.
