back and fourth

Pete Yorn has a new song out, called “Don’t Wanna Cry.” You can listen to it on his website or you can download the MP3 for free for a limited time from www.spinner.com. It starts out pretty gently and escalates to a relatively rocking conclusion. It almost sounds like it belongs on his “Westerns” EP, but it will be leading off “Back and Fourth.” The track listing for the new album is available on his MySpace page:

  1. Don’t Wanna Cry
  2. Paradise Cove
  3. Close
  4. Social Development Dance
  5. Shotgun
  6. Last Summer
  7. Thinking of You
  8. Country
  9. Four Years
  10. Long Time

Analyzing the 10 new songs on the album, we see that three of them have actually already been made available for previewing. We have the aforementioned track, and there’s also “Shotgun,” which is currently still featured on his MySpace page. Right after “Shotgun” is a track that was on the MySpace page last year, called “Last Summer.” It’s a long song with some good instrumentation, but I can never understand why singers try to do weird things with their voices. Just belt it out, man.

I’m still undecided about “Back and Fourth.” His last album was quite good, but it had “The Man” on it, which is a phenomenal song, so that helped boost it up quite a bit. Fortunately, summer music releases allow for plenty of time to play the songs over and over again until your brain is numb and accepting. Perhaps that will be the case? :)
