James Yorkston and The Second Hand Orchestra will release The Wide, Wide River on January 22nd. The album came to be after the blossoming of a long-term friendship between James Yorkston and Karl-Jonas Winqvist, the Swedish music producer, leader and conductor of The Second Hand Orchestra.
Alongside the announcement, James Yorkston and The Second Hand Orchestra (JY & TSHO) are pleased to share the first song from the record, “Struggle”. With its lyrics: “And I hope I can tell you that I love you, when you are too old to be told”, “Struggle” is a tender and beautiful love song to James’ children. “It’s me telling my kids that it’s ok to not be ok, and that indeed, sometimes I struggle” adds Yorkston.
