The Road: Part 1


After a rollercoaster twenty-five year career as an artist, curator and tastemaker, James Lavelle returns with UNKLEs fifth studio album: The Road. In the twenty years since UNKLEs debut, Lavelle has been prolific. He created three studio albums with UNKLE (Never Never Land, War Stories and Where Did The Night Fall), a host of critically acclaimed film scores, and curated a series of art exhibitions through Daydreaming with... most notably, the hugely successful DayDreaming with Stanley Kubrick exhibition at Somerset house. I hadnt made a record in a long time, and the incarnation of UNKLE had changed in that now, it was me on my own. For that reason, I wanted to make a record that I hadnt been able to before, going back to the roots of where I came from, with a foot in modern London. After a productive trip to the States, Lavelle returned to London to add the finishing touches to what was shaping up to be another classic UNKLE record. Lavelle then managed to conclude a twenty year conversation with Primal Screams Andrew Innes, as the pair finally got together in the studio. Innes plays lead guitar to the albums title track The Road. Another first for Lavelle was a collaboration with Planet Funks Gigi Canu and Marko Baroni, who along with Duke Spirit starlet Liela Moss, contributed to Sunrise (Always comes around), UNKLEs reinterpretation of the summer anthem.
