Lady Of The Sea
Seth Lakeman releases a single, Lady of the Sea, his first for Relentless Records, on Monday July 31st. His album, Freedom Fields, is also re-released through Relentless on the dame day.
Prodigiously talented, Mercury Prize-nominated and already armed with a steadfast cult following, West Country born singer songwriter Lakeman is rapidly rising up from the underground.
A soaring, self-penned tale of love and loss, Lady of the Sea is a wholly distinctive piece of music sung with enthralling intensity and power that firmly sets Seth apart from his contemporaries. It's rhythmic edge, so rarely found in the armoury of a singer songwriter, helps make it both visceral and poignant. Following last year's Mercury Prize nomination, Lady Of The Sea reinforces Seth's reputation as one of our most exciting new home-grown talents.
He also slapped a jet-lagged Taylor Hawkins.
The acclaimed performer had just cancelled touring due to a battle with cancer.
