Bill Ryder-Jones

Bill Ryder-Jones has a released video for a second track from his new album, Yawny Yawn and more dates to his tour, Getintothis’ Peter Goodbody has the details.

Bill Ryder-Jones will release new album Yawny Yawn on July 26th.

Now he is pleased to share a second track from the record, And Then There’s You.

Yawny Yawn acts as an accompaniment to 2018’s Yawn, and finds Bill stripping back his songs to piano and vocals only, opening an even more intimate window onto his world.

Multi-instrumentalist, producer, string-arranger and composer Bill Ryder-Jones has had a career spanning 15 years, a rarity in a world that so often looks to the new.

From his musical interpretation of Italo Calvino’sIf On A Winters Night A Traveller‘ (If… in 2011), 2013’s A Bad Wind Blows In My Heart, West Kirby County Primary (2015) and last year’s Yawn, Bill has constantly widened his scope, weaving in an overarching sense of authenticity, intimacy and wryness as he goes.

PRIDE: 10 years on and still people ask why?

Having just returned from Glastonbury, Bill will play a string of festivals this summer including Green Man, before embarking on a special piano tour in September.

After selling out his London show in 24 hours, a second date has been added alongside dates in Cambridge and Glasgow.

Yawny Yawn is available to pre-order on standard vinyl (the limited-edition vinyl has sold out) and digitally.
