Emily Barker & The Red Clay Halo release 'Nostalgia'; the soundtrack to BBC 1's TV series 'Wallander'


Independent folk solo artist Emily Barker is set to release new single ‘Nostalgia' on 8th February through label Everyone Sang. The track will be released as a digital download and will be available through iTunes and other major DSPs.‘Nostalgia' has recently been featured as the opening title theme to BBC1’s highly acclaimed drama series ‘Wallander’ (http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00pxtct) starring Kenneth Branagh.

The Bafta-winning theme tune emanates from Emily’s album ‘Despite the Snow’ and has also won a Royal Television Society award for best original theme. Not bad for a musician who has never owned a television set! The kick back from ‘Nostalgia' being featured in ‘Wallander’ has seen ‘Despite the Snow’ hit the No.1 spot on both the iTunes Singer/songwriter charts and Amazon’s MP3 Folk albums chart over the past fortnight.
