Pete Yorn's new self-titled album: Stream it here

pete-yornImage Credit: Jim WrightPete Yorn had a full schedule in 2009: Readying and releasing his fourth full-length solo album, Back and Forth by June, Breaking Up with a crimson-monikered movie star in September.

Now, the New Jersey-bred singer-songwriter has returned with yet another solo release, his first to be self-titled, and the first to come out on Vagrant Records, home to the Hold Steady, Black Rebel Motorcyle Club, and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.

Also a first? Production by Frank Black, the man perhaps better known as Black Francis, frontman of alt legends the Pixies. Stream their collaboration in full below, before it goes to stores September 28:

    Finally, a Yorn album that lives up to the promise of “Music for the Morning After.”

    Pete can do no wrong, I haven’t an album to death like I did Back and Fourth in a long while… can’t wait to switch it for PY. And SO glad that Paradise Cove is also on this album…it’s my all time fav. Can’t wait for Tuesday.

    There’s def a Frank Black influence on this one…I like it!

  • Frank from

    I am surprised by how “personal” the lyrics are, as well as by how much Pete cranked up the guitars. Great album and easily his best since his first two.
