The Range shares new single 'Urethane'

With his eagerly-awaited new album landing in the coming months, producer James Hinton aka The Range has now returned to deliver the next cut from his forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Urethane' comes accompanied by a brilliant new video, directed by Stevie Gee and Essy May, and follows on from the previously shared tracks 'Bicameral' and 'Ricercar' in previewing his first LP in six years, 'Mercury', which is out on the 10th June via Domino.

Speaking about the new offering, he said, “The lyrics ‘last year man got left in the dark - cause man didn’t really have nothing to say’ hit me hard as I was feeling pretty left out and forgotten. I had moved from the thick of it in Brooklyn to rural Vermont, and in late winter 2019 and I felt like I had a mutually agreed upon separation from the world. Those lyrics were defiant to me and I liked that as a way of fighting back against that feeling.”

While the directors added about the video, “Essy designed the record cover for The Range’s inspiring new album, Mercury. The design combines technology, science and surrealism within the natural world. Essy and Stevie used this design and those themes as an inspiration to create an animated world where Mercury is the most valuable of commodities. The video for “Urethane” follows a loose narrative about male and female twins exploring a planet where they seek the mercury and are ultimately consumed by its power, all the while pursued by a mysterious mercury man who they ultimately become. The ever-changing form that mercury can take, flowing, moving and morphing is an inspiration for the animation as well as themes of change, decay, growth and rebirth.”
