Sleepless Night is an extended play by American indie rock band Yo La Tengo, released in October 2020 via Matador Records.

Yo La Tengo (often abbreviated as YLT) formed in New Jersey in 1984. Since 1992, the line-up has consisted of Ira Kaplan (guitars, piano, vocals), Georgia Hubley (drums, piano, vocals), and James McNew (bass, vocals). In 2015, original guitarist Dave Schramm re-joined the band and appears on their fourteenth album, Stuff Like That There.

Despite achieving limited mainstream success, Yo La Tengo has been called "the quintessential critics' band" and maintains a strong cult following. Though they mostly play original material, Yo La Tengo is renowned for its encyclopaedic repertoire of cover songs both in live performance and on record.

The project consists of five covers and one original song, with an etching on Side B. The new original track is “Bleeding” and the five covers were written by Bob Dylan, Carole King, The Delmore Brothers and more.

The cover art for the EP features the artwork of acclaimed Japanese artist Yoshitomo Nara. A retrospective Yoshitomo Nara exhibition was scheduled to take place at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) but has been postponed due to the global pandemic. It will likely run into 2021.

The drawing of the band was by Georgia, includes an etched illustration by YLT's own James McNew pm Side B.

This limited edition 12” EP is on black vinyl with an etching on Side B with a printed inner sleeve and fold out insert, pressed in the UK via Matador Records.
