the first 15 copies come with a 5 track bonus disc 'the world on a wire ep' with individual handmade sleeves (only 50 have been made in total). taking a break from his various other bands and collaborations (including the electric soft parade, brakes, british sea power and patrick wolf) thomas white releases his third solo album 'yalla!' via bleeding hearts recordings.
