Jarvis Cocker, English musician and former frontman for the band Pulp, has made an unconventional concept album composed of field recordings from 13 different historical locations in the UK. The album, for which he collaborated with the National Trust, features the sound of gravel being crunched underfoot in the grounds of the 17th-century Belton House near Grantham in Lincolnshire, recording of the waves lapping hypnotically on the shore at Brownsea Island in Poole, Dorset and creaking floorboards at Sir Winston Churchill’s former home at Chartwell, Kent, among other sounds.

The album is available as a free download on The National Trust website.
