James Yorkston Unveils New Video

...and a Christmas show
James Yorkston

James Yorkston has unveiled the video for new single 'Just As Scared' alongside details of a special Christmas show.

James Yorkston doesn't make urban music. Instead, the Scottish songwriter specialises in rural scenes shot through with tightly wraught emotions, using the weather-worn landscape as a canvas for dramatic material. New single 'Just As Scared' is a case in point: indebted to the folk tradition, it's deeply Scottish without seeming forced.

Due to be released on October 29th, the single comes equipped with a new video. Shot on a remote Aberdeenshire beach, the clip boasts a guest appearance from Sparrow & The Workshop vocalist Jill O'Sullivan.

Watch it below.

James Yorkston has also confirmed plans for a one off Christmas show. Taking place at the Shacklewell Arms on December 19th, it's not yet known if Yorkston will be donning a Santa hat and beard... although we have crossed our fingers.

As if that wasn't enough, Domino have confirmed plans for a deluxe box set edition of recent album 'I Was A Cat From A Book'. Each box contains 2 x 10" gatefold with download, CD of the album, DVD of live show Union Chapel 2011 & a remix album by David 'A' Jaycock. Plus printed backgammon pieces to be played on the LP gatefold, 3x badges.

Order here.
