Kate Tempest Goes Direct To Disc For Record Store DayFriday, April 21, 2017
This morning on BBC Radio 6 Music, Lauren Laverne had the exclusive first play of a new track from Kate Tempest People's Faces during a 10 special broadcast live from Vinyl Tap Record Store in Huddersfield celebrating a decade of Record Store Day in 2017.
The track is one half of a 2 track 10" by Kate with Dan Carey that was recorded direct to disc in Studio Three at Abbey Road earlier this year by engineer John Barrett with assistance from Stefano Civetta, with the signal from the mixing desk going straight upstairs to mastering Room 5 with each track being was cut live directly to vinyl by mastering engineer Christian Wright in just one take.
Since being played on air this morning, that 10" has since been wrapped up in an envelope and safely shipped off to a Record Shop elsewhere in the UK where it will be available to one single lucky customer tomorrow in-store as part of the Record Store Day 2017 celebrations.
Whoever finds the record has been encouraged to contact BBC Music immediately on the day.
