Singer and songwriter James Yorkston returns with his fifth studio album ‘I Was A Cat From A Book’, armed with a new band, complex life-experience themes and gentle folk stylings. The follow up to 2008’s ‘When The Haar Rolls’ is a beautifully shaded piece of work replete with organic imagery and bittersweet, earthy tones, recorded mostly live with a cast of musicians that includes Luke Flowers of The Cinematic Orchestra on drums, Kathryn Williams on guest vocals and Emma Smith on violin.
