In anticipation of the forthcoming album ‘The Road’ (release date TBA), UNKLE have announced new track ‘Sick Lullaby’ featuring Keaton Henson, released today.
‘Sick Lullaby’ entwines two musical enigmas in UNKLE and Keaton Henson. The track is haunting; rooted in an ambient UNKLE sound, that leads to a cinematic crescendo of strings and brooding piano.
This news follows from the announcement of UNKLE’s exhibition ‘UNKLE Presents…THE ROAD: SOHO’, at Soho’s Lazarides gallery (20 Jan-23 Feb). This is the first in a series of events over the next year celebrating 25 years of UNKLE and their new album. The exhibition features exclusive video and VR installations from talented artists and collaborators, including 3D from Massive Attack, Futura, Doug Foster, John Isaacs, Norbert Schoerner, John Nolan, Nathan Coley, Ben Drury, Warren Du Preez and Nick Thornton Jones, Dexter Navy, Seamus Farrell and more.
UNKLE’s astounding debut album Psyence Fiction set the standard and became a cult classic. Having founded Mo’Wax in the early Nineties, UNKLE are undoubtedly at the forefront of a global musical movement.
Keaton Henson’s latest album, ‘Kindly Now’ was released in September last year to outstanding critical acclaim. Keaton is a seemingly mysterious figure, he very rarely performs live, and has never posted on social media. His anonymity is no accident. His ethereal and thoughtful music has earned Keaton legions of dedicated fans.
‘Sick Lullaby’ is the second track from UNKLE’s upcoming album ‘The Road’, following the release of ‘Cowboys or Indians’ in July 2016.
