"But there's a fortune to be had from telling people you're sad," says Bill Ryder-Jones in the opening track of his fourth studio album Yawn.

The Merseysider will be releasing his latest offering on November 2 on stalwart label Domino.

To coincide with the album, Bill revealed that he will perform his 'biggest' headline gig to date at Liverpool's newly refurbished, Grand Central Hall on Thursday, December 13 courtesy of Harvest Sun promotions.

Giving audiences a taster of the new material, Bill shared 'Mither', a song about his mum and on Tuesday, September 4 shared the video for track 'And Then There's You'.

The last taster track before Yawn's release, 'And Then There's You' is a ghostly murmur of Bill's classic somber sound.

Keeping his signature frank lyricism, Bill creates a painful lullaby with 'And Then There's You'.

The video, directed by James Slater, compliments that track's spirit-like state. Venturing into the past while exploring the future.

There's even a cameo of By The Sea's 'Endless Days Crystal Sky' LP.


Recording and producing the album himself, Bill recruited the help from his friends including The Orielles and Our Girl with vocals and mixing by Craig Silvey.

Along with his own material, he was received production credits for other musicians including Our Girl, Hooton Tennis Club, Brooke Bentham and Holly Macve who he records at his own Yawn Studios in West Kirby.
