With his new album The Route to the Harmonium due for release on February 22nd on Domino Records, James Yorkston has shared a second track from the Long Player Shallow. Tender and wistful with a gentle modulated heartbeat, Shallow echoes the sands of time as they slip through the fingers. Forever unrecoverable.
A theme that runs through The Route to the Harmonium. Friends and family, past and present, those that have remained and those who have left is the strongest thread on the album.
The first solo album from James Yorkston since 2014’s The Demonstration of The Craws, The Route to the Harmonium was self produced by James alongside David Wrench. Following the previous release of the spoken word My Mouth Ain’t No Bible, Shallow is more indicative of the classic Yorkston sound
Recorded almost entirely by James himself, in his home of the Scottish fishing village of Cellardyke, The Route to the Harmonium (or, ‘the search for peace’) is released February 22nd and is available to pre–order on exclusive green vinyl (w/ signed poster), deluxe green vinyl (w/ poster), standard vinyl (w/ poster), CD and digitally from Dom Mart.
