On 3 August James Yorkston is to release a new single, the limited edition 7 Martinmas Time. The single is taken from James forthcoming 5th studio album Folk Songs, which sees James teaming up with The Big Eyes Family Players for a new album of traditional songs, set for release a week after the single on 10 August.
Limited to 300 copies, James version of Martinmas Time, learned from the singing of Anne Briggs, is backed by Nottanum Town, which is also taken from the Folk Songs recording sessions. Each 7 comes in its own unique sleeve – 300 blank sleeves have been sent out by James Yorkston & James Green (aka Big Eyes) to friends and family to be designed, desecrated, doddoled & decollated on. Already with their crayons to the ready are King Creosote, The Pictish Trail, Lone Pigeon & Steve Mason. Who knows which one you’ll get?!
