Bill Ryder-Jones has announced a piano version of his 'Yawn' album.

'Yawny Yawn' will feature reimagined songs from the 2018 record and is set to arrive on July 26 alongside Jones' various summer festival appearances, including Glastonbury, Electric Fields, Green Man and more. He will also tour 'Yawny Yawn' with special piano shows in September. He said:

"I can't remember why I thought it was a good idea to make a piano version of 'Yawn'. I presume at some point I felt that the original had too much pep. Was actually quite fun to make although I've since developed a dislike for the way my hands look."

Head below to view the 'Yawny Yawn' tracklist and cover art, which, similarly to 'Yawn', features a family photo. There's also a video for the track Don't Be Scared, I Love You.

"Much like the artwork for 'Yawn', this photo just looked like it should be an album cover. Whereas 'Yawn' featured my brother, our babysitter and myself in the background, the artwork for 'Yawny Yawn' shows me at my aunt's house aged three and playing my keyboard."

'Yawny Yawn' tracklist:

1. There’s Something On Your Mind 
2. Time Will Be The Only Saviour 
3. Recover
4. Mither 
5. And Then There’s You 
6. There Are Worse Things I Could Do
7. Don't Be Scared, I Love You 
8. John 
9. No One’s Trying To Kill You
10. Happy Song
