Yo La Tengo Plot New Album, Video, Tour Dates

By November 21, 2012

Follow me on:

Yo La Tengo have a new album. It's called Fade. It's out on January 15. On Matador. It's the follow-up to 2009's Popular Songs. It was produced by John McEntire of Tortoise.

"The deluxe LP comes in a numbered edition printed on rainbow foil with a bonus 7-inch; featuring two exclusive covers: "I Saw The Light" (Todd Rundgren) b/w "Move To California" (Times New Viking)," Matador type on their blog, "MP3 download accompanying the deluxe edition includes an additional 11-minute bonus track, untitled as of this writing."

The first single, "Before We Run," has already been unveiled, in the form of a video by animator Emily Hubley (sister of YLT drummer/vocalist Georgia Hubley). The song is a six-and-a-half minute orchestral epic, filled with brass and woodwinds and strings, sounding just about as sentimental as anything in Yo La Tengo's career.

Fade Track List:
1. "Ohm"
2. "Is That Enough"
3. "Well You Better"
4. "Paddle Forward"
5. "Stupid Things"
6. "I'll Be Around"
7. "Cornelia and Jane"
8. "Two Trains"
9. "The Point of It"
10. "Before We Run"
