Ray Winston ft. in new Unkle Video + Unkle have a new EP: The Answer
NEWS:: UNKLE are wasting no time with another release on September 10th, this time The Answer EP which includes two new songs, ‘The Run Away’ featuring Lupe Fiasco (who previously used UNKLE in one of his tunes ‘Hello/Goodbye’) and a remix from Tim Goldsworthy.
The Answer is a limited of 3000 pieces worldwide and is available in a “soft pack”
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 new EP titled; ‘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 video for the Big in Japan-featuring title track was directed by John Hillcoat. Ray Winstone features in the video talking about a big thing that happened to him that changed his life. There’s actually a separate new video for the same song directed by Ross Cairns below which features footage from the ‘Lives Of The Artists’ documentaries of snowboard free-riders Jeremy Jones and Xavier De Le Rue.
