On January 15, we’ll be releasing Fade, the new studio album from Yo La Tengo. Recorded with John McEntire at Soma Studios Electronic Studios in Chicago, Fade is reminiscent of landmarks like 1997’s I Can Hear the Heart Beating as One and 2000’s And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside Out, but there’s no shortage of moments that stand far apart from anything the trio have done previously. The 10 song collection, arguably the most focused and cohesive output from Ira, Georgia and James to date, is a tapestry of fine melody and elegant noise, rhythmic shadowplay and shy-eyed orchestral beauty, songcraft and experimentation.

Fade’s lyrical themes of aging, tragedy and emotional bonds are woven into a fully-realized whole ; the results are direct, personal and more than a little uplifting. Check out the animated video for ‘Before We Run’, created by Georgia’s sister Emily Hubley.

 

Hitting the road for long stretches next year, their first North American tour dates run from January through February, followed by a European tour in March.

I couldn’t help re-using the ‘Yo La Tengo meet their Japanese doubles’ photo again, but I’m sure you’ll understand why
