Before his supporting stint with Coldplay this spring and summer, it had been more than two years since Pete Yorn‘s last tour. Now the singer-songwriter has unveiled plans for a nine-week headline tour of the United States to promote two upcoming album releases.

The summer 2009 trek launches June 24 with a sold-out show at The Roxy Theatre in West Hollywood, CA, and completes its circuit with an August 27-28 stand at Music Box at Henry Fonda Theater in Los Angeles, CA.

The 26-city trek also includes two-night stands on July 28-29 at Webster Hall in New York, NY; August 3-4 at Park West in Chicago, IL; and August 12-13 at Fine Line Music Café in Minneapolis, MN. The tour bus will make a single stop north of the border for an August 21 concert at Venue in Vancouver, BC.

Tickets for select dates of the tour are already on sale, including Yorn’s two-night stand at Webster Hall. Presales for some other shows will begin over the weekend, followed by public onsales. Yorn’s official Web site links to tickets for each show as sales begin.

Yorn is touring in support of two upcoming album releases. On June 23, his fourth studio album, “Back and Fourth,” will hit stores, though it is currently available for presale on iTunes, with a scheduled June 16 digital delivery. The second album slated for release in 2009 is a collaborative project with actress Scarlett Johansson on vocals, labeled “Break Up.” That effort is scheduled for release on September 8.

“I had this idea in my head that I wanted to make like a kind of male/female duets record and I had this idea in my head about Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardot, although more the dynamic than the sound,” Yorn explained in a recent interview on Coldplay’s official Web site, which spotlighted him because of his affiliation with the Viva La Vida summer tour. “I thought maybe I could get Scarlett to do that and she agreed.”
