With their eagerly-awaited new album landing next week, Dutch Uncles have now delivered the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.
The new single 'In Salvia' sees them team up with Metronomy's Anna Prior for the release, and follows on from the previously shared 'Poppin'', 'Tropigala (2 To 5), and the record's title-track in previewing their sixth LP 'True Entertainment', which is out on the 10th March via Memphis Industries.
Speaking about their collaboration, Anna Prior said, "I love Dutch Uncles. I've been tooting their horn to anyone who will listen. Naturally, I responded with a resounding "I DO" when they asked me (on Valentines day 2022) if I would consider lending my voice to some of their new music. Fast forward a few months whilst on tour with Metronomy and holed up in a hotel room in a part of Europe I was newly visiting, I set up a make-shift vocal booth (with equipment borrowed from my band mate Gbenga) and started adding my own touch to what has turned out to be one of my most adored Dutch Uncles LPs yet. 'In Salvia', is one of my favourites on the new record - a perfect slice of melancholy pie."
While vocalist/lyricist Duncan Wallis added, "A reference to the flower of the same name’s symbolism of wisdom, longevity, good health and innocence, is a rather stark narrative detailing when the qualities listed above have nothing to contribute to the realities in front of you. Partly inspired by a not insignificant number of years propping up bars and asking the wrong questions, its only seeming redemption being an acknowledgement of what the end actually looks like."
