"Yashar" is a single by Cabaret Voltaire. The single is two remixes by John Robie of a track from their 1982 album 2x45. A version of the song also appears on the live album Hai! (Live in Japan).

The single was released in May 1983 on Factory Benelux (FBN 25)[1] and Factory Records UK (FAC 82).[2] It reached No. 6 on the UK Indie Chart.

The track features a sample "There's 70 billion people of Earth; where are they hiding?" from the Outer Limits episode "Demon with a Glass Hand".

As well as the 5:00 and 7:20 versions on the single, a 6:36 version was released on the 1983 compilation LP Factory Benelux Greatest Hits.[3]

Further remixes of the track were released on Mute Records' NovaMute imprint in 2003 (12", NovaMute 12-NoMu-121, 9 June 2003).[4]
