Announce new album
The Road: Part 1
Watch the beautiful new video for ‘Looking For The Rain’
The Road: Part 1 out August 18 on Pod / Rhythmethod
After a rollercoaster twenty-five year career as an artist, curator and tastemaker, James Lavelle returns with UNKLE’s fifth studio album: The Road: Part 1, out Friday August 18 on Pod via Inertia Music / Rhythmethod, a collection of fifteen new UNKLE tracks inspired by his curation of 2014’s Meltdown Festival at Southbank in London.
Lavelle has premiered the visuals for the latest single off the album, “Looking For The Rain”, a call to arms in our turbulent modern world, written by long-time collaborator Mark Lanegan with string arrangements by Will Malone (Massive Attack, “Unfinished Symphony” and UNKLE’s “Lonely Soul” amongst others). The video, by visual artist Doug Foster, was created by “filming a variety of subjects from nature, such as water, crystals and plants. The footage was composited in several stages to eventually form a moving tunnel of light that features synchronised repetition and bilateral symmetry.”
