Are you as excited for the new Yo La Tengo record as we are here at the store? Can't wait until September 8th to get your paws on it? Well, luckily, we're offering pre-orders for the upcoming album, Popular Songs, through Matador's "Buy Early Get Now" program.
You can pre-order CD and LP formats- the CD is $27.99 and the LP is $40.99. When you sign up for the pre-order here at the store, you will receive a card with a code that gives you immediate access to a stream of the full album, plus access to MP3s. Additionally, each pre-order will also receive a bonus LP and poster when the album arrives! Woo!
Here's a more succinct, bulleted breakdown of the pre-order details:
* AVAILABLE NOW - The full 192k album stream with the 2 existing MP3s
* August 18 - First Bonus MP3
* September 1 - Second Bonus MP3
* September 8 - The new album (on CD or 2xLP) along with an exclusive vinyl LP featuring Yo La Tengo’s Orginal Score from the Motion Picture “Adventureland”) and a bonus poster.
Edit: The delivery date on those bonus MP3's was changed on 7/27 by Matador (check the Matador website for details).
Please note: In order to guarantee receipt of ALL the bonus material (the MP3s, in addition to the live LP and poster), you are required to log in (using the unique code that you receive when you pre-order the new YLT).
Also, we have tickets for the Yo La Tengo show at Urban Lounge on October 12th! Tickets are $18- get 'em while they're hot!
