Unkle Drop Only The Lonely EP and Where Did The Night Fall-Another Night Out
Unkle will release their five-song Only The Lonely EP digitally and a new, extended version of their 2010 album Where Did The Night Fall-Another Night Out in April. The physical version of Another Night Out will come in a very limited edition box set later this spring, and can be pre-ordered at Unkle.com.
Many of the songs on the new EP were a collaboration with Nick Cave, as well as The Duke Spirit's Liela Moss and former Sleepy Sun member Rachel Fannan. Cave was particularly proud of his work with the band.
"I always had a huge soft spot for Unkle-their pop sensibilities, their hooks, big choruses, their super-treated production--so when they sent me some music to sing over I jumped at the chance...I wrote a lyric--something desperate sounding to run counterpoint to the joyful racket of the music. It's a fucking hit."
The Another Night Out box set will contain six unreleased songs, all of the tracks from Only The Lonely, and a few songs from the band's The Answer EP. The set will also come in gold and contain a 32-page booklet and 16 page board book with new exclusive photos.
Unkle will kick off the release of the box set with a performance at London's Brixton Academy on April 1st with The Duke Spirit before touring through Europe and Australia, including a gig at the Sydney Opera House.
