Cover My Tracks
In an interconnected, digital world, what does it take to disappear?
Cover My Tracks, a new production with live music, starring Charlie Fink and Jade Anouka will be performed at The Old Vic, as part of Lates at The Old Vic.
Former Noah and the Whale front-man and songwriter Charlie Fink, multi-award-winning playwright David Greig and director Max Webster bring us the tale of an idealistic young songwriter who sets out to write a 21st Century pop masterpiece and vanishes without a trace. Might his personal songbook be the key to unlocking the mystery?
Theatre and music interweave in this unique show, bringing together the experience of a live gig and modern folk tale.
The theatrical production of Cover My Tracks premieres in tandem with the release of Charlie Fink’s debut solo album of the same name, on sale 2 June 2017. The album, produced by Charlie Fink, will feature studio arrangements of the music heard in the theatrical production with string arrangements by Trey Pollard (Natalie Prass, Matthew White), backing vocals from The Staves and acclaimed classical guitarist Laura Snowden. Following the run at The Old Vic, festival appearances of the theatrical performance are set to follow throughout the summer.
