About the album

This is composer Luke Richards’ soundtrack to the ITV crime-thriller Six Four. The four-part series is inspired by the best-selling Japanese novel Six Four by Hideo Yokoyama. It has been produced by House Productions, created by award-winning screenwriter Gregory Burke (Black Watch) and directed by Ben A. Williams (Sherwood, Baghdad Central). Vinette Robinson (Boiling Point) and Kevin McKidd (Grey’s Anatomy) lead the cast, with James Cosmo, Brian McCardie, Richard Coyle and Alison Peebles also starring.

Luke’s superb soundtrack to the series combines tension-building tracks, such as ‘Abduction’ and ‘Take Me There’ with more intricate, emotive tracks, including ‘Shadows and Dust’ and the stunning piano piece ‘Alone, Again’.

‘Set in Glasgow, Six Four is a dark and compelling story of kidnap, corruption, betrayal and an uncompromising search for the truth, when Chris and Michelle O’Neill’s teenage daughter goes missing.

Serving police detective, Chris, played by Kevin McKidd, is provided with a startling revelation about an infamous, unsolved case that once divided the police when a local girl called Julie Mackie disappeared. Now, reeling from the news that his own daughter has gone missing, Chris is approached by a journalist who tells him that fatal mistakes were covered-up in Julie’s disappearance. Revisiting the case, Chris uncovers a series of undeniable errors, corruption and unbridled ambition.

As Chris fights to make sense of what he’s discovered, his wife Michelle, played by Vinette Robinson, takes matters into her own hands in search of their daughter. Using skills she learned as a former undercover officer, Michelle takes ever-increasing risks as she follows a trail of clues into the criminal underworld she previously escaped from, where vice and extortion had the power to reach to the top of the political establishment.

While Chris and Michelle do everything they can to get to the truth, the daughter of the Justice Minister is suddenly kidnapped, just as the minister is on the cusp of achieving a political election victory. The kidnap has unnerving similarities to the Mackie case. Is the past repeating itself, or is the explosive truth of what really happened to Julie Mackie about to be revealed?’

Six Four begins airing on ITVX from Thursday 30th March.
