Anyone wondering when the hell music genres became so niche will be relieved to learn that Mersey balladeer Bill Ryder-Jones has announced the release of his fifth album, Yawn on November 2 via Domino. It’s a good old fashioned guitar record, with lyrics you can relate to and melodies you can hum that might get stuck in your head — and you won’t even mind if they do!

Ryder-Jones has been writing tunes and playing actual instruments since 2002 when he was a key ingredient in The Coral, and he’s since gone on to make a nice little solo career for himself that has most recently found his dulcet mumble accompanying some long, guitar based tunes that evoke the sincerity and fun of the 1990s.

Sincerity? FUN? Hmmmm. What did that used to feel like?

You can pre-order Yawm now and sample the lead single “Mither”.

01. There’s Something On Your Mind
02. Time Will Be The Only Saviour
