Pete Yorn recorded BREAK UP in 2006 on the heels of one, but it sat on the shelf until 2009, appearing just a matter of months after BACK & FORTH, and a year after his duet partner, Scarlett Johannson, cast as Brigitte Bardot to Yorn's Serge Gainsbourg, made an awkwardly arty splash with a Tom Waits covers album, but the album that really casts a shadow over this is VOL. 1, the 2008 record by She & Him, the teaming of M. Ward and indie actress Zooey Deschanel. Yorn and Johannson cut their album long before She & Him, but surfacing in its wake, they can't help but seem a bit like the polished, polite answer to the twee, precious charms of Zooey & M. Ward. BREAK UP does trump VOL. 1 conceptually, chronicling the dissolution of a romance as a series of duets, and Scarlett is a more-than-worthy foil to Yorn.

Surprised this wasn't hotter. I've heard a lot of this album and have really enjoyed it.
