something new

Want to hear another song from Pete Yorn’s upcoming album “Back and Fourth“? Right now the CW’s website has the full episode of “One Tree Hill” that features Pete’s song “Long Time Nothing New.” Of course I don’t recommend watching that show, so just skip to 38:30 to hear the song, with plenty of sappy dialogue over it. You’ll have to suffer through a couple of commercials too, but I will say that this is the best song I’ve heard from the new album. There’s no doubt it will be more enjoyable without these caveats, but it will do if you’re curious about the sound of the album. After several listens, I’d go so far as to say that “Long Time Nothing New” really sounds like a song that could belong on “musicforthemorningafter,” and that’s quite a compliment. Some lyrics:

Same old town
Loose ends surround me
Always drags you down
Don’t let it get you down

Same four walls
Don’t mean anything
To anyone
It’s all you talk about
As you see yourself
Break out

I’ve seen you this way before
A life’s strained but true
What are we waiting for?
It’s been a long time, nothing new are some bonuses for pre-ordering the album via iTunes: you get two bonus tracks (one of which is a very old, rare song called “Rooftop,” the other which is new), and you get to download the album a week before it becomes available anywhere else. The other perk is that you get to pay $0.99 and download “Don’t Wanna Cry” immediately, which would be cool if the song hadn’t already been released for free all over the place. I actually installed iTunes (unthinkable!) before I came to my senses and realized that it wasn’t worth it. It sure was fun manually uninstalling the Apple Update, iPod monitor, and QuickTime programs that Apple nonchalantly and covertly installed along with iTunes. 🙂

I’ll just wait until the release date and get it from Amazon so I can keep saying that Steve Jobs has none of my money.
