UNKLE will release new album 'The Road: Part II / Lost Highway' on March 29th.
The record is the mid-way point of a trilogy, and owes a debt to James Lavelle's show with London online station Soho Radio.
"I started doing a show on Soho Radio in 2018, which made me think about playing records in a different way. It wasn’t about trying to make people dance in a nightclub. It was a breath of fresh air, and about playing a more eclectic mix. ‘The Road: Part II’ was made in the same way – it’s a mixtape and a journey. You’re in your car, starting in the day and driving into the night. The language of it was to be the ultimate road trip."
‘The Road: Part 1’ was largely viewed as a return to form, with UNKLE aiming to continue this momentum on 'The Road: Part II / Lost Highway'.
"It’s the mid-part of a trilogy. The first record is like you’re leaving home; you’re naive and on a journey of discovery. There are elements of my early days in there, as well as a bit of everything since. There’s an optimism and excitement to the record, as there was with me having to direct this project alone for the first time".
Out on March 29th, the record is trailed by new song 'Ar.Mour' - featuring Elliott Power and Miink, you can check it out below.
