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.
