“I’ll Be Around” is a beautiful and to me personally meaningful newish song by Yo La Tengo, whom I’ve been fond of for longer than I can remember. So lovely to hear that voice again.

The video, directed by Phil Morrison, is charming and amusing at the same time. I always appreciate videos (and photos) with superimposed text. This video takes it to an interesting level by showing the lyrics to the song briefly at the beginning and then using different poetic lines and a recipe instead. Also you get to see Yo La Tengo cook and there’s a rather unexpected ending.
