Hot on the heels of performing with Frank Turner at the Olympic Games Opening Ceremony, Emily Barker & The Red Clay Halo are releasing a new single, ‘Fields Of June’.
Friends and musical peers since meeting in 2006 after sharing a stage in London, Emily and Frank have been inspired by duets by artists such as Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris, Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazelwood and Nick Cave and Kylie Minogue, and they have teamed up to create the dark ballad.
‘Fields Of June’ is backed with Emily’s theme tune to Kenneth Brannagh’s television series, Wallander which recently aired on ABC1. The song, ‘Nostalgia’ won her and the composer Martin Phipps a BAFTA for Best Soundtrack.
