    While his latest LP, Back and Fourth, is set to drop on June 23, Pete Yorn already has his sights set on another project: a Serge Gainsbourg/Brigitte Bardot-esque duets album with Scarlett Johansson. Due out on September 8 through Atco/Rhino, Break Up, features nine tracks—eight Yorn originals and a cover of Big Star's "I Am the Cosmos." The first single, "Relator," is now streaming on the album's official site here.

    "I was having a strange week of insomnia and when I finally passed out, it came to me in a dream," Yorn said in a press release about the record. "I woke up and the whole thing was in my head, fully formed."

    Break Up:
    1. Relator
    2. Wear and Tear
    3. I Don't Know What To Do
    4. Search Your Heart
    5. Blackie's Dead
    6. I Am The Cosmos
    7. Shampoo
    8. Clean
    9. Someday
