On Track…with SEAT is set to return to Channel 4 on Wednesday September 28th for a second series in an extended format – presented by BBC 6Music’s Tom Ravenscroft.
On Track is the music series that gives an insight into the artist recording process as they step back in time to record a unique session direct to vinyl at Metropolis Studios in London. As well as recording three original tracks from their songbook each artist will also record a cover version of a song which has influenced them in some way. The first series of the show saw The Maccabees interpret Howard Blake’s Christmas perennial Walking In The Air as well as Robyn’s contemporary take on Prince’s classic, When Doves Cry.
Globe Productions, Universal Music UK’s in-house production company, are responsible for creating the show and are busily putting the show together for your viewing pleasure.
BBC 6Music’s Tom Ravenscroft steps up as the show’s first presenter and brings his own blend of knowledge and passion to the series. He will chat to each of the featured artists as they delve into their record collections and discuss the tracks and artists that have shaped their musical journey.
SEAT will exclusively host the cover track from the show on their Facebook page, available to be streamed and for download to the first 10,000 fans.
Confirmed artists for On Track’s second series so far include Example, Friendly Fires, Kaiser Chiefs, James Morrison, and Rizzle Kicks.
The eight-part series starts on Wednesday September 28th on Channel 4 at half past midnight. The subsequent seven shows air on Wednesdays at midnight.
