Last month, beloved singer-songwriter Pete Yorn released Caretakers (via Shelly Music), his first solo album in three years. This November and December, Pete will hit the road on his first full band tour of North America in over three years with a backing band made up of members of the celebrated indie dream-pop group Day Wave, including Jackson Phillips who co-produced Caretakers with Yorn.
Beloved singer-songwriter Pete Yorn announces Caretakers his first solo album in three years and his most spontaneous collection to date out August 9 via his new label Shelly Music. Produced with Jackson Phillips of the celebrated indie rock band Day Wave, the album finds Yorn trusting his gut and working from instinct more than ever before. Many of the tracks were written and recorded start-to-finish in a prolific series of single-day sessions that balanced freewheeling exploration with careful, deliberate craftsmanship.
Pete Yorn is back...well almost. The title back and forth is very appropriate for his latest offering. It feels as though Yorn has spent a good part of his music career trying to figure out his sound. His first two albums MusicfortheMorningAfter and Day I Forgot were very similar. Both played to Yorn's strong songwriting abilities. Yorn went a bit off course with his third album Night Crawler. Do not get me wrong, Night Crawler has its moments but it is incredibly overproduced to the point that it drowns out Yorn's vocals.
