Pete Yorn Rides Again

26 Aug

I’m a huge fan of Pete Yorn and was excited to hear the news of a new album coming out in September on Vagrant Records. But wait. Vagrant? Not Sony? So what’s up with that? Sources tell SVB that he’s still on Sony. But my hunch is that the geniuses over at Sony didn’t hear any hits, listened to the album’s Frank Black stripped-down production, didn’t think it was up to par with Pete’s typically ornate and baroque self-rock, and decided to let Pete put the record out anyway, which is a darn smart move on their part. But of course, I’m conjecturing on all this.

So, yes. Pete Yorn, new record on Vagrant, September 28th. Self-titled. Produced by Frank Black around the time Pete recorded his last album Back And Fourth. Here’s a track from the album via Magnet.

    I was wondering about that too. Is he is or is he ain’t with Sony because I get email from Sony/Columbia re: new CD, so I guess your hunch about “the geniuses” is probably correct.

    The songs I’ve heard so far, precious stone and Velcro shoes are the best Yorn’s sounded since musicfor.
