Pete Yorn is gearing up to release his first solo record in nearly six years, Arranging Time. The LP, which will be put out by Capitol Records, follows his 2010 self-titled album and marks his sixth overall.
In a lengthy Facebook post about the record, Yorn, who’s collaborated with the likes of Scarlett Johansson and Frank Black in recent years, explained how he wanted to get back to his “original style of creating and recording”.
“….After branching out creatively for a few projects, I felt I had come full circle and once again found myself really excited to work in my original style of creating and recording. This led me back to my old friend R. Walt Vincent who I had made my first two records with. It was powerful to reconnect with Walt and record on the fly, just coming up with parts and ideas as inspiration hit, and I found that we were creating fresh new material that felt like a furthering of the conversation we had started back in 2001.”
He also went on to discuss what fans can expect from the new full-length, as well as hinted that a supporting tour is in the works
“This new record represents a step forward in sonics and creativity while celebrating and honoring some of the groundwork I laid back in the early part of the century. In addition to working with Walt, I enlisted some other talented friends and producers to collaborate with namely Sunny Levine who produced Break Up, Scott Seiver who has been my live touring drummer since 2008, Marc “Doc” Dauer of Trampoline Records and Jukebox Junkies fame, and lastly, Jeff Trott who produced a killer track I can¹t wait to share with everyone soon. Oh, and the great Kennie Takahashi mixed a few songs for us, and we were very happy to have him on board. I’m so excited for the opportunity to share this new music with you and I look forward to seeing you out on the road.”
Although Arranging Time is without a release date, Yorn has revealed its lovely lead single in “Summer Was a Day”. Check it out below via its lyric video.
