Yorkston / Thorne / Khan have released a track trailing their third album.
‘Westlin’ Winds’ is taken from ‘Navarasa : Nine Emotions’, due for release on January 24th 2020, via Domino Records.
The new album follows up 2016’s debut ‘Everything Sacred’ and its successor, ‘Neuk Wight Delhi All-Stars’ which came out the following year.
The trio – James Yorkston (guitar/nyckelharpa/vocals), Jon Thorne (double-bass/vocals), and Suhail Yusuf Khan (sarangi/vocals) – will launch the release at a Celtic connections show in Glasgow in January in advance of a March Scottish tour.
As ever with recordings from the trio, a cross-cultural theme emerges – the single goes from Robert Burns’ poem ‘Now Westlin Winds, (And Slaught’ring Guns)’ before transforming into a composition in Purbi (a dialect of old Hindi) by poet-philosopher Hazrat Amir Khusrau.
