Singer-songwriter Peter Yorn has officially announced his next solo album, slating it for release this August. The musician released two singles from the album prior to this, the tracks “Calm Down” and “Can’t Stop You” which were both released at the end of May. Now, however, Yorn has fully announced his new project, an album he has titled Caretakers. The release date for Caretakers is set for August 9th and it will be put out via Yorn’s Shelly Music label. The album comes three years after Yorn’s previous full length project, 2016’s ArrangingTime. With the release of Caretakers only a little over a month away, the wait for new music from Yorn is almost over for fans.
Peter Yorn is a soft rock focused musician who got his start in the early 2000s, making a name for himself with his debut album in 2001. The project was titled musicforthemorningafter and shot Yorn from obscurity to fame. The album was successful off of the back of the track “Life on a Chain,” whose popularity shot the project to gold certification. Since then, Yorn has released a series of albums perfecting his indie rock sound and delving more into what inspires him. With the newly announced Caretakers album, Yorn is diving deeper into his spontaneous side and taking a brand new approach with the project. In an interview Yorn stated that some of the songs on the album were created in a single day, with the musician trusting his instincts when it came to how the track should sound. The project will truly be one of the most inspired albums Yorn has ever put together.
The two singles released so far give fans a good taste of how the new project will sound all together, with both tracks sounding just as smooth as fans could want. Since the release of the singles both songs have had lyric videos released online; the one for “Can’t Stop You” debuting last week. The lyric video featured skateboarding and an old school quality reminiscent of 1990s skateboarding videos. The video for “Calm Down” used a similar old school video style, this time showing shots of a city from above and on trains. If these videos are anything to go by, the whole theme of the album will be focused on this same nostalgic tone. However the project turns out, fans of Yorn are sure to be excited.
