UNKLE return with new single 'Do Yourself Some Good'

Following on from the release of their much-loved 2019 LP 'The Road: Part II (Lost Highway)', UNKLE have now returned to share a brand new single, lifted from their forthcoming mixtape.

The new track 'Do Yourself Some Good' was premiered on Mary Anne Hobbs' 6Music show last night (10th February), and is set to feature on their upcoming mixtape ‘Rōnin I’, which is due out on the 26th March via their own imprint Studio:UNKLE.

Speaking about the new offering, leader James Lavelle said, “‘Rōnin’ was an idea that started in lockdown back in June 2020 where Steven (Weston) and I started doing some remixes for a new set we thought we would be playing later in the year. As the lockdown continued and any hope of live shows disappeared, we decided to work on it as a mixtape where we could create an hours worth of new remixes and incorporate brand new tracks in the spirit of a new live show, but give it a proper release due to the circumstances.

“I wanted to take a look at my work across ‘The Road’ period and create club versions of particular tracks, reflecting the mood of where we are, but to also take it into an optimistic uplifting place. To create a mix that felt like both letting go and coming together - the best things that club music can do to take you on a journey through all the eclectic elements of a set I love to play. I looked at certain songs where I felt the lyrics were in feeling with the current world we are living in. Most of the songs were recorded before Covid-19 hit, there was a lot of struggle, uncertainty and political change and unrest at that time. The pandemic has just amplified that, so I felt the songs still resonated with today’s situation giving them a new lease of life.”
