Pete Yorn calls up Kyle Meredith to discuss his two new songs, “Calm Down” and “Can’t Stop You”, and how they lead into his new album, Caretakers. He talks a little about how the album, out August 9th on Shelly Music, was recorded and co-written with Jackson Phillips of Day Wave. Elsewhere, he explains why he’s drawn to collaborations with folks like Scarlett Johansson, Liz Phair, and The Olms; his 20th anniversary working in the business; and how Bob Dylan’s Rolling Thunder Revue has had an influence on his own touring.
