Former front man of The Cult, Ian Astbury, lends his world weary drawl to the song to spectacular effect. It opens with a short burst of acoustic guitar before building upon the pulsating, insistent beat for which UNKLE (James Lavelle and Richard File) are known, ebbing and flowing between foreboding and abrasiveness, a sense of urgency and paranoia present throughout. Astbury’s voice has never sounded so good. Lavelle says of working with Ian Astbury, “‘Burn My Shadow’ was the first song we recorded for the album. We did it in isolation, there was no pressure. It was very natural working with Ian, for all involved. This song has been the catalyst for the whole album.” The artwork for the single is a painting by Massive Attack’s 3D, one of a stunning set of specially commissioned paintings which will feature on the singles and album. ‘Burn My Shadow’ will be the first release on James Lavelle’s new label, Surrender All, part of the Surrender All stable which will connect his famously broad range of interests – music, fashion and art – through one independently run axis: Surrender All is the record label, which will be a home for exciting new talent, whatever its musical persuasion, with the aim to push boundaries in the same that Mo Wax did. James has also set up the Surrender clothing line, the Surrender Sound studio.
