New Release & Video: Yorkston/Thorne/Khan – Bales

Yorkston/Thorne/Khan have unveiled their fantastic new single, taken from their highly-anticipated second record as a trio, Neuk Wight Delhi All-Stars, released on 7th April

Take a listen and a watch of the accompanying visuals, below…

The new record follows the band’s debut, 2016’s critically acclaimed Everything Sacred, and presents a confluence of currents, among them the north Indian sarangi; jazz-tinged bass, reminiscent in places of Danny Thompson; acoustic guitar that owes a debt to Elizabeth Cotton, Dick Gaughan and Mississippi John Hurt; and three very different vocalists – James Yorkston (East Neuk of Fife), Jon Thorne (Isle of Wight) and Suhail Yusuf Khan (New Delhi)

The trio will also head back on the road in April for a headline UK tour…
