This is a cover of the theme music to Mackenzie Crook's excellent series "Detectorists" from BBC4. The series has won Baftas but I had not heard of it until just the other day when I saw Zoe Ball recommending it on IPlayer.

It really is excellent as is the theme music.

Recorded guitar and vocal separately today both with condenser mics (Rode NT1 fro vocal and AKG for guitar). Also trialed my neck cam to limited success. Couple of mistakes as ever but it is what it is.


Will you search through the lonely earth for me,
Climb through the biar and bramble.
I'll be your treasure.

I felt the touch of the kings and the breath of the wind,
I knew the call of all the song birds.
They sang all the wrong words.
I'm waiting for you,
I'm waiting for you.


Will you swim through the briny sea for me,
Roll along the ocean's floor.
I'll be your treasure.

I'm with the ghosts of the men who can never sing again,
There's a place follow me.
Where a love lost at sea.
Is waiting for you.
Is waiting for you.
