Pete Yorn: Irving Plaza New York (Photos)

Singer-songwriter Pete Yorn kicked off his tour in support of his new album ArrangingTime in New York City.

It has been hard for Pete Yorn to make an album that critically surpasses his 2001 debut, Musicforthemorningafter. That record, with it’s scratchy, needle drop intro is ingrained in my memory and a string of hits like “Murray”, “Strange Condition” and “Life on a Chain” was an impressive debut. Since then, Yorn has released five more albums, including this year’s similarly strung together title Arrangingtime, his first in six years. The new album sees Yorn reteaming with his original producer R. Walt Vincent to create a set of warm songs that envelop Yorn’s generally strong lyrics. At Irving Plaza in New York City, Yorn treated fans to a set that drew from his entire catalog, including many of my aforementioned favorites. Check out photos from the show below and catch Yorn on the road as he wraps up his tour.
