, Staff

Performing songs off of his forthcoming album Bank and Forth, singer-songwriter Pete Yorn will hit Boston’s House of Blues on Sunday, July 26. Tickets now on sale through Ticketmaster for $25 and $35.

Yorn, who just wrapped up opening for Coldplay, is touring in support of highly anticipated forthcoming album, Back and Fourth, which is set to hit stores on June 23. The album, his fourth studio effort, follows 2006’s Nightcrawler. The album was produced by Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes) and Frank Black (The Pixies) and features the talents of Beck drummer Joey Waronker, Bright Eyes pianist Nate Wolcott and many more.

Later this fall, Yorn and actress/singer Scarlett Johansson will release their collaborative album, Break Up. Inspired by Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardot’s duet recordings, the 9-track duet album was actually recorded in 2006 but Yorn only recently decided to release it after playing the album for a few friends. The work predates Johansson’s 2008 debut album, Anywhere I Lay My Head, which was comprised of ten Tom Waits covers along with one original tune. Break Up is comprised of eight Yorn originals plus a cover of Big Star’s "I Am The Cosmos." The lead single, "Relator," is now streaming on the album’s website.
