Tig Digs: Charlie Fink - 'Cover My Tracks'

Although you might not recognise his name, you almost definitely know Charlie Fink's band Noah & The Whale, with whom he scored hits such as 5 Years Time and L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N. Since the band parted ways a couple of years ago they've had various solo projects, and last Friday marked the release of Fink's debut solo album, Cover My Tracks, featuring the wonderful track I Was Born To Be A Cowboy which you can listen to below - if you listen carefully to this and other tracks from the record you'll be able to hear the beautiful backing vocals of The Staves.

The record is a unique release, a combined album and theatre show (so called "gig theatre") with Fink and actress Jade Anouka performing the record in full for two weeks at The Old Vic at 10pm til the 17th June. It's press night earlier this week earned it a 4* review in the Evening Standard (read it in full here), calling it a "late night, minor key delight". If you're in London next week be sure to catch it, tickets available here (and if you're out of London then the show might be headed near you on its regional tour later in the year - dates here!) You can listen to the record on Spotify here and grab a copy in record stores or at the show itself!
