    Pause - from the new album Almanac.

    Pause has been selected by award-winning composer Martin Phipps as the theme tune to The Shadow Line, a major new drama serial created by Hugo Blick for BBC Two.

    Martin, who collaborated with Emily on the Bafta-winning Nostalgia / Wallander theme tune, has once again created a new version of the original recording to fit the title credits and other sequences of this anticipated TV drama.

    The Shadow Line is a sophisticated conspiracy thriller in seven parts, that brings to life a cinematic world of blurred morality and the conflicted characters who inhabit it, featuring a star studded cast, including: Chiwetel Ejiofor, Christopher Eccleston, Sir Antony Sher and Stephen Rea.

    It arrives to BBC2 on Thursday 5th May at 9pm for seven episodes and Emily and The Red Clay Halo have the honour of providing the title music.
