12" Vinyl EP With Etched Illustration On B-Side!

Yo La Tengo returns with an EP comprised of the new original track "Bleeding" and covers of songs by The Byrds, The Delmore Brothers, Bob Dylan, Ronnie Lane, and The Flying Machine.

The tracks on Sleepless Night were initially released as one side of an LP included within a limited-edition catalogue (published by LACMA and DelMonico Books/Prestel) for the LACMA exhibition, Yoshitomo Nara, the first international retrospective for the Japanese artist Yoshitomo Nara (b. 1959). A longtime YLT fan, Nara worked in collaboration with the group - Georgia Hubley, Ira Kaplan and James McNew - to choose the EP's songs.

This Matador version of the EP is a single-sided 12" with original cover art by Nara, a drawing of the band by Hubley, and an illustration by McNew etched on the record's flip.

A quarter-century hasn't diluted their chemistry an ounce.
It is a rare thing when a band in its fourth decade of existence can perform nothing but new songs without attracting crowd ire, but Yo La Tengo is that band.
