Seth Lakeman - Make Your Mark
This item is scheduled to be released on 14th December 2021.
New album from Seth Lakeman, a man who spent his lockdown wisely.
+ Both LP formats are due 22nd January 2022.
Written during his enforced 18 months off the road, the album features 14 powerful, brand-new songs.
+ Both LP formats are pressed on standard weight vinyl.
Recorded at Middle Farm Studios in Devon earlier this year as restrictions eased and produced by Seth himself, the album is being released on his own label, Honour Oak Records. Inspiration for the songs on his 11th studio album came from a range of subjects – from the environment to love, death and self-belief.
"The pandemic gave me a real determination to come out musically stronger and I really dug deep into myself for this album” says Seth “Being able to record and play with the band again was really quite spiritual”
Musicians joining him on the album include long-time bassist Ben Nicholls, who has toured the world with Seth since the early days plus Benji Kirkpatrick (Bellowhead, Faustus) on bouzouki, banjo and mandolin. Plymouth-based musician Alex Hart adds her sublime backing vocals and Toby Kearney, principal percussionist at the Birmingham Conservatoire, is on drums.
Seth has been making his mark since he was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize in 2005 for Kitty Jay. As well as the new studio album, he is celebrating the 15th anniversary of his gold-selling ‘Freedom Fields’ album this year with a deluxe reissue on CD & Vinyl. Fans will be treated to songs from both the new album and Freedom Fields at his live dates in November and December.

Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.
Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.
