James Yorkston enjoys the company of others.
Sure, the Scottish songwriter is a defiantly solo artist, someone with a unique voice, but for his new album Yorkston has invited a few friends round.
'The Cellardyke Recording And Wassailing Society' will be released later this year, with lead single 'Great Ghosts' arriving on August 18th.
A collaborative affair, the track utilises the blood, sweat and voices (primarily the latter) of The Pictish Trail, KT Tunstall and Hot Chip's own Alexis Taylor.
The video for 'Great Ghosts' is now online, and it's a cute, animated clip. Amidst the visual trickery watch out for a few hilarious shots of the musicians involved...
