UNKLE Have The Answer

Brand new single “The Answer” (featuring Big In Japan) to be released in conjunction with James Lavelle’s major new art exhibition and collaboration at Haunch of Venison.

UNKLE’s new single ‘The Answer’ is the follow up to ‘Follow Me Down’ and is taken from the critically acclaimed new album ‘Where Did The Night Fall’. It is also the lead track from an EP which will form part of an art exhibition at Haunch of Venison gallery, inspired by James Lavelle’s desire to marry music and visual art, entitled “Daydreaming… with James Lavelle”

It is a novel concept: tracks from the EP are serving as a catalyst for a variety of artists to create works from. The art will then be exhibited at Haunch Of Venison gallery, over the summer bank holiday weekend, 27th – 30th August.

‘The Answer’, a collaboration with improvisational Baltimore-based band Big In Japan - who have been touring as the backing band for UNKLE since 2007 - is a towering anthem and an album highlight. Stadium in size, the lush, layered vocals sound all encompassing when set against epic, Middle-Eastern tinged strings, tumbling drums and a fuzzy bassline. Oscillating between quiet lulls and soaring highs, it once again sees UNKLE alight on entirely new ground to exhilarating effect.

The EP shall receive both a limited edition vinyl and digital release and features a mixture of brand new tracks and reworked version of songs from ‘Where Did The Night Fall’.

The EP will be available on Sept 13th.
