This is all great timing as James Yorkston has a new album out soon:
I Was A Cat From A Book by James Yorkston will be released by Domino on Monday the 13th of August 2012. His first album since 2008’s When The Haar Rolls In, I Was A Cat From A Book finds James playing with a new band comprised of members of Lamb & The Cinematic Orchestra alongside old friends. The album was produced by James Yorkston and Dave Wrench and mostly recorded live during 5 wintry days in Bryn Derwen Studios, North Wales. It’s an album full of energy and great musicianship, and contains James’ strongest and most bewildering set of songs yet.
Listen to a new album track ‘Catch’ below:
Since the release of When The Haar Rolls In, James has published a book (It’s Lovely To Be Here), collaborated with The Big Eyes Family Players on Folk Songs & seen the 10 year anniversary release of Moving Up Country, his landmark debut album.
I Was A Cat From A Book will be available on CD, 2 x 10” vinyl (exclusively featuring 2 extra tracks ‘Thar She Blows’ and ‘Black Horse White’) and digitally. There is also a spectacular Box Set version, containing 2 x 10″ gatefold vinyl with download, the CD of the album, a DVD of James’ performance at the Union Chapel in 2011, a remix album by David ‘A’ Jaycock, printed backgammon pieces and dice to be played on the LP gatefold and 3 badges.
