Unkle Releases New Album THE ROAD: PART II/THE HIGHWAY

UNKLE have just released their new album THE ROAD: PART II / LOST HIGHWAY through frontman James Lavelle's label Songs For The Def. The album, which is split into two acts, is the follow-up to the highly acclaimed The Road: Part 1. The highly anticipated record has already made headlines with tastemakers like Pitchfork, Stereogum, SPIN, and KEXP!

Listen to The Road: Part II / Lost Highway here!

"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.

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.

This record is the journey. You're on the road, out there in the world. There are let downs, highs, lows, love, loss and experiences. The third record to come is basically about coming home; wherever that may be."

- Creative force behind UNKLE, James Lavelle.
