New Release: Yo La Tengo – For You Too

Yo La Tengo have unveiled a brand new track, taken from There’s A Riot Going On, the band’s first original album in 5 years, which will be released March 16th

Have a listen to For You Too, below…

The album highlight, with gently entreating vocals from Ira Kaplan, is led by a poignant electric guitar line, propulsive rhythmic heartbeat, and discreetly driving bass, as he sings: “For you / whenever there’s hurt / and things are uncertain / Maybe I could be that guy / I’d like to try”

There’s A Riot Going On is an essential new chapter of one of the most respected and adventurous bands in rock history. For the first time ever, the trio of Georgia Hubley, Ira Kaplan and James McNew are the only musicians on the record. In making the album, the band recorded what could be called field recordings: on the road, during sound checks, in a way very much distinct and unconventional for a band of their lane, but which comes together to something altogether fluid and uniquely warm
