New James Yorkston album

Today I saw this new James Yorkston video, which precedes his new album, I Was A Cat From A Book.  The special edition of the album looks utterly amazing. The video is precisely what musicians should be doing in the digital age, in my view.  Good work James, and good work Domino Records.
