"Shipping Song uses the arcane shipping forecast as the template for one of the most original and astonishing songs of the sea you could wish for..."

That's what folkradio.co.uk has to say about Lisa Knapp's highly original 'Shipping Song', an ode to one of BBC Radio 4's most beloved segments, the Shipping Forecast.

The Shipping Forecast is so embedded in our culture, it became part of the opening ceremony at the London Olympics. And where ceremony director Danny Boyle trod, so Lisa has followed to stunning effect.

Lisa, also the winner of Best Original Song at the recent BBC Folk Awards for her song, 'Two Ravens', is releasing a Peter Flood re-mix of her 'Shipping Song', and we have an EXCLUSIVE STREAM below.

Listen in, be lulled by those sounds of the sea and, be honest, how many place names do you recognise?

Lisa Knapp's albums 'Wild And Undaunted' and 'Hidden Seam' are both available now.
