UNKLE (the British electronic band led by James Lavelle) have announced a new album, The Road Part II / Lost Highway, and have shared a video for the previously shared song "Ar.Mour." The Road Part II / Lost Highway is due out March 29 via the band's own Songs for the Def. It includes "The Other Side," a song UNKLE shared in December that features vocals from Tom Smith of Editors. Check that song out below, as well as the video for "Ar.Mour," the album's tracklist, and its cover art.

The album is the follow-up to 2017's The Road: Part 1. It features a slew of special guests, which are detailed in the tracklist below.

Lavelle had this to say about the new album in a press release: "I started doing a show on Soho Radio in 2018, which made me think about playing records in a different way. It wasn't about trying to make people dance in a nightclub. It was a breath of fresh air, and about playing a more eclectic mix. The Road: Part II was made in the same way - it's a mixtape and a journey. You're in your car, starting in the day and driving into the night. The language of it was to be the ultimate road trip.
"It's the mid-part of a trilogy. The first record is like you're leaving home; you're naive and on a journey of discovery. There are elements of my early days in there, as well as a bit of everything since. There's an optimism and excitement to the record, as there was with me having to direct this project alone for the first time.
"This record is the journey. You're on the road, out there in the world. There are let downs, highs, lows, love, loss and experiences. The third record to come is basically about coming home; wherever that may be."
