Bill Ryder-Jones has announced that he will release a solo piano version of his 2018 album ‘Yawn’, titled ‘Yawny Yawn’, next month. He will also head out on a piano-only tour later this year.

“I can’t remember why I thought it was a good idea to make a piano version of ‘Yawn'”, says Ryder-Jones. “I presume at some point I felt that the original had too much pep. [It] was actually quite fun to make, although I’ve since developed a dislike for the way my hands look”.

The new album will be out on 26 Jul. Following festival dates through the summer, he will then head out on a ‘Yawny Yawn’ tour in September. Here are the dates:

24 Sep: Isle Of Man, Bar 1886
26 Sep: Reading, South Streets Art Centre
27 Sep: Margate, Tom Thumb Theatre
29 Sep: Exeter, The Phoenix
30 Sep: Southampton, The Joiners
2 Oct: London, St Mattias
4 Oct: Sheffield, Upper Chapel
5 Oct: Kendal, The Brewery
6 Oct: Manchester, Band On The Wall
