Shadow Box is a collection of live versions, covers and other hard-to-find or previously unavailable Emily Barker tracks, many found here for the first time on CD. Most tracks feature three close friends that Emily recorded and toured with for nine years: Gill Sandell, Jo Silverston and Anna Jenkins - The Red Clay Halo. There are live recordings from their biggest, sold-out headline show - at Union Chapel in London in 2012 - the show was filmed and some of the songs are on Emily's YouTube channel - also, for the first time on CD, there are the four covers they recorded live to disc at Mark Ronson's Zelig Studios in London - originally released on a 10" vinyl EP on Record Store Day 2014. The Rains and Every Season were recorded with Calum Malcolm and released as a digital EP along with Fields of June and Nostalgia, but up until now have only been on the German CD release of Dear River as bonus tracks. Other tracks are ones that haven't been available on CD before, or were originally included on compilations.
