Music | News | Seth Lakeman Announces Eighth Studio Album ‘Ballads Of The Broken Few’


By Kieran Webber

Seth Lakeman has returned with news of his eight studio album ‘Ballads Of The Broken Few’ which will be available September 16th via cooking vinyl. It is a stunning combination dynamic songwriting and playing, the genius of legendary producer Ethan Johns and the sublime harmony vocals of emerging young female trio Wildwood Kin.

Ethan Johns has worked with the likes of Ryan Adams, Kings of Leon, Paul McCartney, Tom Jones, Ray LaMontagne, Laura Marling, The Staves and Crosby, Stills and Nash.  He agreed to produce the album after Seth sent him one roughly recorded song on his mobile phone, with Wildwood Kin adding their lush harmonies to his own gritty lead vocals.

In addition to the album announcement Seth has shared a live recording of the album titled track. A stripped back, simple yet effective folk track that is layered in classic temperaments that is so often linked to Lakeman.
