About this item

James Yorkston, an artist not unfamiliar with the notion of collaboration, has opened the studio doors to a broad and brilliant selection of players on this his eighth studio album.

Produced by Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor in London’s Livingston studio, it features KT Tunstall, The Pictish Trail, Rob Smoughton, Fimber Bravo and his long term collaborators Jon Thorne and Emma Smith.

‘The Cellardyke Recording And Wassailing Society’ finds James at his most personal and reflective, following 2012’s ‘I Was A Cat From A Book’.

What James and his collection of fine musicians have created is an album that connects the intimacy of his hometown life with the camaraderie of good friends. ‘The Cellardyke Recording And Wassailing Society’ flows with acceptance and relief and is James’ fullest body of work.

The album artwork was created by celebrated children’s author and illustrator Clare Beaton.
