Unthanks take to the air with new album, tour
Mount The Air is the new album by The Unthanks, and the title track is the first single from it.
Written by Unthanks pianist and producer Adrian McNally, the single is based on the themes of a one-verse traditional ditty, found in a book of
Dorset songs in Cecil Sharp House by Becky Unthank, who also co-wrote some of the new words alongside McNally. The video to the track is made by animator Nick Murray Willis.
Two years in the making and recorded in their Northumberland studio, there is considerable anticipation for the new album. Having turned down continued offers from major record companies, Mount The Air is released on their own label, RabbleRouser Music, on 9th Feb 2015.
Mount The Air (Single Version) is released 8th Dec 2014.
