The Waterboys rework WB Yeats' poems

A selection of WB Yeats' poems, including September 1913 and An Irish Airman Foresees His Death, have been set to music on The Waterboys' new album, An Appointment with Mr Yeats.

The band's frontman, Mike Scott, told Front Row he made some structural changes to Yeats' lines in order for the lyrics to work with music.
