With ten years and five studio albums under his belt, Pete Yorn is a stalwart in the singer/songwriter world. Originally receiving acclaim for his work scoring a Farrelly
Brother s film (Me, Myself and Irene), Yorn quickly began garnering much deserved attention for his efforts as a songwriter outside of his work on film. Having tasted success,
Yorn released his first full-length, musicforthemorningafter in 2001,which went gold and had Rolling Stone hailing him one of Ten To Watch in 2001.
Fast forward through nearly a decade and multiple musical ventures to 2010 to find Pete Yorn releasing his sixth studio album on Vagrant Records. The 11-song collection
was produced by Frank Black (The Pixies) and is comprised of raw tracks, born of shattered nerves and shifting dreams- yet edged with hope.
Recorded on the spur-of-the-moment in the summer of 2008, Yorn s forthcoming album is a self-titled piece with a plain black cover. While in the midst of tracking Back &
Forth, Yorn received an email from Frank Black suggesting they record some songs. After hopping a plane to Salem, OR, Black and Yorn set up an impromptu studio where
they created the album in a mere five days. The result is Yorn s most introspective work to date, as the self-titled album explores relationships, ambivalence and our natural
fear of the future and unknown.
