''The Eternal'' is the sixteenth studio album by Sonic Youth, released by Matador Records on June 9, 2009, their first on that label. It is their first studio album in three years (since ''Rather Ripped''), making it the band's longest delay between studio albums. The album was released digitally, on CD, and as a double LP, in both a standard and a "Buy Early Get Now" (BEGN) edition.

The cover art was painted by John Fahey. The album is dedicated to Ron Asheton. - Wikipedia


After years on Geffen Records, Sonic Youth return to an indie label with their sixteenth studio album. "The Eternal" is a supercharged rocker, recalling aspects of the Evol-Sister-Daydream Nation holy trinity, but with cleaner, louder production and more straightforward momentum. With Pavement's Mark Ibold joining on bass, and producer John Agnello back at the controls, "The Eternal" takes the melodic songwriting of 2006's "Rather Ripped" and slams down the accelerator pedal.
