Sea of Brass is a 2015 release by British Sea Power, featuring a selection of songs from earlier releases re-recorded by the group alongside brass bands.[1]

The recordings originated with British Sea Power's 2014 concerts with a number of brass bands in different places across the UK. The concept and concert tour was also known as 'Sea of Brass'. The band worked with Peter Wraight to arrange songs selected from their back catalogue for brass band.[2]

It was released in a variety of formats and combinations. A primary studio album containing eight tracks[3] was recorded with Foden's Band. An expanded studio album featuring fourteen tracks was released as a double vinyl album. A live recording was made with Redbridge Brass Band at the Barbican Centre in London, a DVD of this recording also being made available. A supplementary CD contains further studio recordings with Foden's Band, recordings featuring only Foden's Band, live tracks performed with Bournemouth Symphony Brass and two recordings of a poem by Jock Scot backed by BSP. These were released variously on CD, DVD, vinyl and download. A deluxe boxset contains all the recordings on CD.

All the releases were made on the band's own Golden Chariot Records label.
