PREMIERES NEW SINGLE AND LYRIC VIDEO FOR SUMMER WAS A DAY06 NOVEMBER 2015 (Toronto, ON) — Los Angeles-based singer and songwriter Pete Yorn announces the release of his sixth full-length studio album, ArrangingTime, to be released via Capitol Music Group/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company, in the Spring of 2016. In anticipation of the upcoming album, Yorn took to Twitter to tease the release of new music with this video clip and today made good on the promise by releasing the lyric video for the gorgeously wistful Summer Was A Day. On it, Yorn’s unmistakable impassioned voice takes centre stage over soft guitar strums. The track sees Yorn once again expand his sound, all the while preserving its hallmarks. ArrangingTime will be his first solo album since 2010’s critically acclaimed Pete Yorn. It also marks a very special reunion with R. Walt Vincent—the producer behind Yorn’s debut, musicforthemorningafter and its follow-up Day I Forgot. “This new record represents a step forward in sonics and creativity while celebrating and honouring some of the groundwork I laid back in the early part of the century,” Yorn says in a personal statement he shared earlier. Listeners have fallen in love with Pete Yorn’s songwriting and storytelling. Since releasing musicforthemorningafter in 2001, he’s consistently entranced audiences worldwide. His high-profile 2009 collaborative album with Scarlett Johansson, Break Up, would go platinum in France, while 2010’s Pete Yorn saw him attract The Pixies’ Frank Black behind the board as producer. During 2013, he teamed with J.D. King for The Olms. Their self-titled debut would enter the Billboard Top Heatseekers Chart at #4. “After branching out creatively for a few projects, I felt I had come full circle and once again found myself really excited to work in my original style of creating and recording,” Yorn said.
