Fade is the new album from Yo La Tengo of Hoboken, New Jersey, who have created possibly their most warm and enveloping album of their prestigious 28 year career.
Today the band share 'Before We Run', the first song to be taken from Fade with an animated video by Emily Hubley [scroll down to see] it leads with vocals from Georgia Hubley, accompanied by gorgeous string and horn sections.
Their 13th studio album to date (or more counting various compilations, film scores and a cover album), it recalls the lush, cohesive moments from 1997's I Can Hear the Heart Beating as One and 2000's And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside Out, condensed to 10 neatly crafted songs that clock in at 45 minutes.
As one of the most beloved and respected bands in America, Yo La Tengo (Ira Kaplan, Georgia Hubley and James McNew) have enjoyed success entirely on their own terms – playing the world’s best concert halls, museums, and dives, dominating critics’ lists, doing a Simpsons theme, playing the Velvet Underground in I Shot Andy Warhol, sharing stages with some of the most important musicians of our time, and even creating a holiday tradition onto themselves with their yearly series of Hanukkah shows at Hoboken, New Jersey’s legendary club Maxwells, from which they’ve donated hundreds of thousands to charity.
