'Back And Fourth' - which was released on iTunes with the bonus track "Rooftop" - will hit stores and all other digital platforms Tuesday, June 23, 2009.

Early returns are in, and fan reviews are shaping up to be just as impressive as the early critical raves:

"A rare complete album with stunning lyrics. This is in the company of some of the best records to come out in a long time..." says Sebastion O, with customer perfectdarkling adding that "this is the type of music you can listen to all day and still find new things to like about each song."

Critics are already hailing the alt-rocker's fourth Columbia Records release as one of his strongest. Alternative Press gave the album four stars, The Huffington Post hailed it as "mesmerizing, in perpetual alt-pop motion, and on course as one of the best albums of 2009," and Performing Songwriter called it "the most introspective disc of Yorn's career."

Pete Yorn will celebrate the release with an intimate New York City club performance, June 18th at Joe's Pub, and then on June 24th at the Roxy Theater in Los Angeles. He completed a spring tour with Coldplay June 4, and returns to the road as a headliner July 9 for a two month run (Go to for complete dates).

Recorded in Omaha, NE, with producer Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, Rilo Kiley), Yorn says the album was inspired by an escape from his everyday routine, and the change of pace between hometown Los Angeles and more rural Nebraska. "I think I found a different kind of inspiration there that helped carry the record home," he says.
