Unkle's "Only The Lonely" EP Released Today

Today marks the release of UNKLE's five-song EP Only The Lonely. All the new songs were a collaboration with Nick Cave, who'd long been a fan of the band's work.

“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," Cave said. "The song they sent was great too - something wonderfully dense about it, like T Rex's Metal Guru or something. I wrote a lyric - something desperate sounding to run counterpoint to the joyful racket of the music. It's a fucking hit.”

Cave contributed vocals and lyrics on the track "Money And Run." Other guest stars include The Duke Spirit's Liela Moss, Gavin Clark and ex-Sleepy Sun member Rachael Fannan. You can stream the entire EP over at AOL. But if you want a single-song sample, listen to "Money and Run" below. You can also view the tour dates and the album's tracklisting.
