Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is the fourth studio album by American alternative rock band Wilco, originally released in April 2002 physically via Nonesuch Records (the album was released online by the band in September 2001).

Wilco formed in 1994 by the remaining members of alternative country group Uncle Tupelo following singer Jay Farrar's departure. Wilco's line-up changed frequently during its first decade, with only singer Jeff Tweedy and bassist John Stirratt remaining from the original incarnation. Since early 2004, the line-up has been unchanged, consisting of Tweedy, Stirratt, guitarist Nels Cline, multi-instrumentalist Pat Sansone, keyboard player Mikael Jorgensen, and drummer Glenn Kotche.

The recording of Yankee Hotel Foxtrot was completed in early 2001 under the bands contract with Reprise Records. Following management changes in Warner (the owner of Reprise), the label decided not to release the album and eventually released the band from their contract and gave the band the rights to the album. Wilco began streaming the album from their website in September 2001 to discourage illegal lower quality mp3 files being distributed on the internet, whilst the band negotiated a new recording contract, eventually signing with Nonesuch Records.

The album was released in physical format via Nonesuch Records in April 2002 and sold more than 55,000 copies in the first week of its release in US, peaking at #13 on the US Billboard 200 albums chart.

The album received widespread critical acclaim and is now regarded as one of the greatest albums of the 2000s.

The album was the first recorded with drummer Glenn Kotche, and the last with multi-instrumentalist Jay Bennett.

This double album 2LP record set is a 2016 reissue on 180 gram black vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve with printed inner sleeves, pressed in Europe via Nonesuch Records.
