Emerging from lockdown, SETH LAKEMAN explodes back on the music scene with stunning new studio album Make Your Mark out 19 November. Written during his enforced 18 months off the road, the album features 14 powerful, brand-new songs including the first single Higher We Aspire which has been playlisted on BBC Radio 2. 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.
Seth Lakeman was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize in 2005 for ‘Kitty Jay’. It catapulted Lakeman into the forefront of the new British folk movement and his follow up was the gold-selling ‘Freedom Fields’ which was released twice in 2006. Produced by his brother Sean Lakeman it came out on iScream and was then re-released by Relentless (EMI) where it went on to become Seth’s first of 6 UK Top 40 albums.
2021 marks the 15th anniversary of Freedom Fields and Seth played a one-off, online global broadcast with his band in February and is touring this November to celebrate. He is also releasing a Freedom Fields 15th Anniversary Deluxe Edition with Bonus Album featuring Unreleased Tracks and Rare Demos. Ticket-holders were treated to songs from both the new album and Freedom Fields at live dates in November and December 2021.
