Yo La Tengo share their third new song in three days

Yo La Tengo have shared their third new song in just three days as the indie legends kick up a gear.

The veterans have released another new song on their newly launched Bandcamp page with ‘James gets up and watches mourning birds with Abraham’ marking another beautiful moment.

On Monday the band released ‘James and Ira demonstrate mysticism and some confusion holds (Monday)’ and the following day shared ‘Georgia thinks it’s probably okay (Tuesday)’.

The songs are arriving from a fruitful lockdown rehearsal session about which Ira Kaplan said: “In late April, with the outside world weighing on everybody, we determined that the three of us could assemble in Hoboken without disobeying the rules laid out by Governor Murphy, and resumed… ‘practicing’ hardly describes it, because we’ve done no practicing per se, and anyway what would be practicing for… playing. “

“James set up one microphone in the middle of the room in case we stumbled on something useful for the future. Instead, we decided to release something we did right now.”
