Yo La Tengo Will Fade In January

Yo La Tengo will release their next studio album, Fade, on January 15 via Matador Records. Recorded with Tortoise’s John McEntire, the ten-song album is described as “arguably the most focused and cohesive output from Ira, Georgia and James to date, a tapestry of fine melody and elegant noise, rhythmic shadowplay and shy-eyed orchestral beauty, songcraft and experimentation”. A statement from the band goes on to explain, “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. If it’s frustrating for us to hint at an album this evocative and heartbreaking without giving you something to check out in advance, check this space tomorrow at around 10am eastern time.”

Yo La Tengo will support the album with a series of US and European dates in early 2013. They will also host their annual Hanukkah celebration at Hoboken, NJ’s Maxwell’s from December 8-15.
