Jarvis Cocker releases album of odd noises

275x250.jpgFormer Pulp front-man Jarvis Cocker has teamed up with the National Trust to produce an album of weird sounds including birdsong, creaky floorboards and trickling water.

Cocker worked with staff from the conservation charity to produce the 33 minute album which it is hoped will increase visitor numbers.

The three month project saw them searching stately homes for unique sounds which were recorded by sound engineers and compiled into 12 tracks.  

Odd tracks include; walking on gravel, birdsong, waves lapping along the shore, footsteps through house, murmurs of children, birds in water garden, and clocks ticking.

'National Trust: The Album' can be downloaded for free here… or you could just listen to the world around you.

"But the release of our new album is the first time that the very sounds of these special places have been given their place in the spotlight."
